Electronic Vital Events Registration System (EVERS)

Medical facilities and funeral directors pre-authorized by the NYC Health Department can report births, deaths, and terminations of pregnancy using the Electronic Vital Events Registration System (EVERS). Facilities that are not authorized and would like to be should email evers@health.nyc.gov for permission to report vital events. Once your account has been created, you will be sent instructions on how to proceed.

Only authorized users can enter data or report vital events in New York City using EVERS. Individuals who work in a hospital and would like to use this system should contact their administrator for access to the system.

All New York City vital event certificates must be completed in English, as our systems cannot handle text in other languages. This means:

  • All first, middle and last names must be spelled in English.
  • No non-English letters or characters are permitted.
  • No accents, symbols or marks of any kind can be written over English letters.
  • Do not include any electronically created or handwritten non-English characters.
  • Numerals may only be used at the end of a name as a suffix (e.g., John Doe, II).

Any certificates with non-English characters will be rejected.

eVital

We will be re-introducing a new system for registering vital events later this year, eVital, after the initial roll-out of that system last year was cancelled due to performance issues. We will continue using EVERS until eVital is fully operational.

At this time, the eVital system is only available for enrollment. All active EVERS users must enroll in eVital. If you enrolled in eVital during its initial roll-out last year, you do not need to enroll again. Facilities should ensure all of their users are enrolled in eVital as early as possible.

For more information about enrolling in eVital, including updates about the new system’s release, visit our eVital webpage.
