Electronic Birth Registration

Florida Dept. of Health, Bureau of Vital Statistics

Electronic Birth Registration (EBR) is the mechanism by which births are registered via a secure Internet connection. It is designed to allow a hospital birth registrar to electronically enter and register a  birth record, and capture and store any required signatures . This innovative technology eliminates the need for hospitals to forward original hard copy birth records to county health departments.

Registered users log on through their local Internet provider and enter the data directly into the state database.  There is no cost for the organization and no limitation on the number of concurrent users.

In order to ensure a record is filed for every delivery, and that no fraudulent record is filed, the birth registrar will fax the local county vital statistics office, a labor and delivery log for reconciliation against the records entered into the database.

All required forms for each employee needing access must be submitted to the state office and those employees must successfully complete a digital tutorial before they can access the EBR system.

To request the forms, complete and submit your electronic request to us.
