Indiana Birth Registration System (IBRS)

The Indiana Birth Registration System rolled out in January of 2007 to 120 birthing hospitals and birthing centers, 95 local health departments, 47 state users and currently has about 1,200 users.

The goal of the Indiana Birth Registration System is to enable the participants of the birth registration process to electronically file birth records with local and state registrars.
