Digitizing Birth & Death Certificates
on BELTED Blockchain Technology
There are 3.9 million births and 2.7 million deaths annually nationally, all documented by paper.

Vital Chain is focused on bringing efficiency and enhanced productivity to the issuing of birth and death certificates. The current process for creating an initial record of birth or death, ensuring validity and storage of data, and issuing regenerated valid certificates is cumbersome, fragmented and inefficient. ​

victims targeted after death each year

Producing and reproducing birth certificates remains a paper-based process, vulnerable to fraud and identity theft.

Up to 90

minutes to complete a birth certificate and hours for a death certificate

The birth and death recordkeeping process requires millions of hours of health professionals’ time, detracting from care provision.

Death certificates are issued after protracted processing, which delays benefits and causes stress at the worst possible time.

The most recent year for matched infant mortality records

Incomplete and unreliable records from birth to death hamper efforts to design and deploy efficient healthcare services.

The focus of healthcare for women and infants over the next century depends on the quality of the data collected by those who fill out the birth certificates.
