HC Decedent Tracking

Modernizing the Process

Without a dedicated system, tracking decedent location and status can be time consuming, typically relying on a chain of phone calls and paper records exchanged among medical examiners, morgue personnel, and law enforcement personnel. Used daily or during a mass fatality event, HC Decedent Tracking™ modernizes this process. The web-based platform allows users to quickly capture and share hundreds of data elements on decedents, creating a faster, less error-prone process.

Reducing the need for paper forms stored for official death documentation and law enforcement investigation.
