Birth and Fetal Death Registration for Hospital Staff

In Minnesota, the State Registrar manages the statewide vital records program and Minnesota Registration & Certification (MR&C). Authorized users of MR&C register the births, fetal deaths, and deaths that occur in Minnesota. Other users of MR&C print certified copies of birth and death certificates for eligible requesters.

Minnesota Birth Facility Report Cards

OVR developed the Birth Quality Reports to share performance feedback with birth facilities and staff who register births. The one-page reports summarize the timeliness and completeness of selected birth registration items reported by a facility. Aggregate data for all birthing facilities in Minnesota is presented for comparison.
