Electronic Registration of Arkansas Vital Events

What is ERAVE?

ERAVE will facilitate electronic communication from the time of the event (birth, death, fetal death) through the registration of the record. A variety of stakeholder groups, hospitals, birthing facilities, hospice facilities, funeral homes, coroners, medical examiners, medical certifiers, local health units, and Department of Health central office staff, will use ERAVE to complete their work electronically. Access to ERAVE will be tightly controlled and based on the role and authority of each individual to ensure that users have access to only the information necessary to complete their work.
