Passare Named NFDA Innovation Award Finalist for Groundbreaking Integration


Passare is proud to announce that it has been named a top-three finalist for the National Funeral Directors Association’s Innovation Award for 2021.

ABILENE, TX – Passare is proud to announce that it has been named a top-three finalist for the National Funeral Directors Association’s Innovation Award for 2021. Passare’s novel integration with the electronic death registration system (EDRS) in Pennsylvania has been recognized as one of the funeral industry’s best new products and services.

This first-ever integration with a state’s EDRS has helped Pennsylvania funeral directors save time and effort when it comes to processing death certificates and is the latest example of how Passare offers a best-in-class experience for funeral professionals and the families they serve.

The NFDA Innovation Award winner will be announced at the Opening General Session on Oct. 17, 2021, in Nashville, TN.

“This last year and a half has been exceptionally challenging for the funeral service profession, and we salute Passare and all of the Innovation Award finalists,” said Lorri Wagner, NFDA Director of Business Development and Coordinator of the Innovation Award program. “The judges were very impressed with the quality of this year’s entries and the ability of companies to continue to create new and inventive products and services during a global pandemic.”

With the Pennsylvania EDRS integration, Passare customers avoid doing the same work twice by using the information they previously entered into their Passare accounts to complete the death certificate in the PA EDRS. This one-of-a-kind feature allows for a smoother connection between funeral homes and the Pennsylvania Department of Health, all while helping to reduce potential errors caused by having to retype information.

“We’re always striving to help our customers and to make their lives easier,” said Josh McQueen, Vice President of Product at Passare. “We’ve enjoyed offering this integration to our Pennsylvania customers, and this is just the beginning. Our goal is to keep moving forward and to keep innovating.”
