Passare Wins 2021 NFDA Innovation Award for Groundbreaking Integration

ABILENE, TX –– Passare is proud to announce that it has been recognized as the National Funeral Directors Association’s Innovation Award winner for 2021. Passare’s novel integration with the electronic death registration system (EDRS) in Pennsylvania has been named the funeral industry’s best new product or service.

First ever integration with a state's EDRS

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.

With the Pennsylvania EDRS integration, Passare customers avoid doing repetitive work and wasting energy 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 retyping information.

“We’re proud that we’ve continued to provide tools and services for funeral homes that make their jobs easier,” McQueen added. “This integration is only the beginning. Passare will keep moving forward, innovating, and providing funeral professionals with options that will allow them to spend as much time as possible with their families.”
