Electronic Death Certificate filing required as of January 2017

As of January 1, 2017, all death certificates in the state of Kansas must be filed electronically.   To comply with this statutory change, all physicians who certify death certificates need to register with the Office of Vital Statistics at the Kansas Department of Health and Environment.

To submit electronic records to the state department of health, physicians and any of their designated assistants will need to have completed a user agreement application.  

Completed documents can be submitted to or faxed to 785-559-4217. Afterward, you will receive an email with additional information to log on to the system.
