Introduction to BHISRE
The Bureau monitors the health status of Massachusetts residents and identifies emerging trends. We collect legal, medical, and statistical information on births, deaths, cancers, health behaviors, and injuries. We issue certified copies of vital records. We provide research databases and technical assistance in their use. We interpret data to inform the public. We disseminate health information about at-risk groups, communities, and the Massachusetts population.
