MR&C Online Death Registration
Minnesota Registration and Certification
The Minnesota Registration and Certification (MR&C) system was implemented March 21, 2011, and is the Minnesota Department of Health’s second generation integrated birth and death electronic registration system.
MR&C is paperless, ensures data confidentiality and security, and is designed to improve data quality and timeliness in death registration. It incorporates HIPAA compliant security features such as access control, encryption, and secure data transmission.
MR&C permits physicians or their authorized staff to quickly and accurately complete cause of death any time from any internet-connected computer and from any location. Rapid filing of the cause of death aids the bereaved family, eliminates delays in estate access and settlements, and allows family members to tend to the necessary end-of-life tasks.
MR&C is also a valuable new tool in public health surveillance. Its speed and availability provides our medical researchers valuable mortality data much faster than previously possible.
