New Death Certificate Forms Launch in 2014

Effective January 1, 2014, physicians will need to utilize a new death certificate form for any patients who pass away from natural causes; the old form should be used for any deaths that occur in the remainder of the 2013 year. The DHHS Vital Records department has created a training section online that spells out the changes to the death certificate forms. Access the Vital Records training by using the login information below.
