The system is used by doctors throughout the country, who by signing the certificate electronically, generate a registry in a centralized database at the Ministry of Public Health and make a request to the Civil Identification Office for the reservation of your identity document number.


In this way, an identification is obtained for the newborn and it is possible to obtain vital statistics data in real time.
