Abstract

The On-Line Registration of Certificates of Live Births was developed in conjunction with the Ministry of Health of Peru and the National Registry of Identification and Civil Status. It is a free system that registers newborns in the delivery room itself which generates a real time certificate of live birth. This simplifies the procedures required to obtain the birth certificate and the National Identity Document for the newborn. This system has been implemented in 114 health centers in 21 regions from March 2012 to March 2013, and has registered 113,917 live births, providing accurate, timely and quality information about these births. This system is the main cornerstone of the health information system which helps obtain real time statistics for adequate and timely decision making in public health.
