Welcome to the Alcestis Medical Examiner and Coroner Data Management System, a web-based case management system that provides a reliable, cost-efficient method of electronically managing case information. Participating offices have the ability to electronically enter, track, retrieve, and update cases while incurring none of the development or maintenance costs of creating a custom database. Using the internet to enter data eliminates version control issues and installation problems.
Many organizations use health status and risk factor data to develop community health risk assessments, target intervention strategies or to conduct research. The social, medical and environmental factors surrounding the cause and manner of death are valuable information.
Alcestis bridges the gap between surveillance and data collection by creating a mortality data collection tool that can be used by medical examiners and coroners to automate their offices as well as researchers interested in injury prevention research.
