Launched in the beginning of 2011, the Vital Information Partnership (V.I.P.) is designed to streamline and integrate all vital event registration, securely, across the Commonwealth. We have reached our second anniversary of birth registration between the Registry of Vital Records & Statistics, birthing hospitals, and city and town clerks’ offices. Over 150,000 records have been recorded; many paternities established, amendments processed and records issued to the public.
The V.I.P. system will be expanded to include a death registration module. Having conducted a pilot with key functionality, the death module is currently going through the final stages of development and testing. The module is planned to launch in January 2014.
Below you will find links to information regarding the V.I.P. system.
