Data, Research and Vital Statistics

Hello and welcome to the online training page for the EDRS/DAVE application. DAVE stands for Database Application for Vital Events. Our current paper-based system no longer meets the needs of our customers or public health officials who need the data for public health monitoring and reporting. It is our hope that EDRS/DAVE will speed the workflow and make it easy to interact with all stakeholders. When fully implemented, funeral directors and medical certifiers will be able to go online to complete a record, sign it electronically and then submit it for registration.

To help support the on going training, the Maine-CDC EDRS team has created a number of resources geared specifically for each stakeholder’s role within the EDRS/DAVE application. Below are web based training materials that include automated instructions with video narrated by a trainer and an on-line EDRS/DAVE manual. The user will be able to come onto this training site any time of the day or night to learn the system.
