Fax Hybrid Compliance Physician has not been trained and has not self registered to use the EDRS Physician completes the paper death certificate The Funeral Director obtains the paper death certificate when the body is picked up Funeral Director completes Demographic Information in the EDRS Funeral Director selects to process manual medical information and the Fax Hybrid begins The EDRS prints a bar coded cover sheet that corresponds to the death certificate being processed. The Funeral Director faxes the cover sheet and the paper death certificate completed by the physician to the EDRS server

12. Back End Processing Fax Hybrid document is electronically transmitted to the State Registrar The State staff enters the medical information into the EDRS and the completely electronic record becomes the permanent record on file. The record is accessible by the State and Local Registrar to print a paper copy for the archives and for certified copies.
