Electronic Death Registration System (EDRS)


MSDH's Electronic Death Registration System provides online reporting of fact-of-death and cause-of-death information by appropriate authorities.

All coroners, funeral homes, and hospitals should register with EDRS and file deaths electronically.

EDRS Equipment Requirements

The EDRS is a web-based system and requires the ability to connect with the Internet. EDRS accessible devices can be a desktop computer, laptop, tablet or Chromebook. EDRS will also work on a smart phone but this device is not supported at this time.

How to contact the EDRS Help Desk

For assistance during the regular work day 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Monday through Friday, email EDRSHelp@msdh.ms.gov or call 601-206-8275.
