New Delhi: The Union Health Ministry, in association with AIIMS, is planning to launch a National Death Registry, which will contain a database about cause of deaths in hospitals across the country.

“This will help policy-makers have a better understanding of disease outbreaks so as to optimise resources and healthcare facilities in respective regions,” said AIIMS computerisation chairperson Dr Deepak Agrawal.

AIIMS has already implemented the pilot version of the death registry with a coding system called the Systematized Nomenclature of Medicine (SNOMED)
