Introduction: The assessment of health technology involves research, analysis and evaluation. The purpose of the assessment is to test the effects of technology on individuals and society. One of the most important information systems is the electronic death registration system, which allows the issuance, updating and approval of the death certificates. Timeliness, easy access, information transfer based on standards, and quick learning are among the features of a system.

Method: This is an applied, descriptive cross-sectional study. Due to the similarity of the electronic death registration system all over the country, the health department electronic death registration system of Hormozgan province was evaluated and all the users of the province were used for need analysis. The instrument for data collection was an isometric questionnaire. The questionnaire was based on ISO 9241 part 10.

Results: The study population consisted of 40 people , 38 (95%) responded that the system was suitable for their tasks, 33 (82.5%) responded that the system was self-descriptiveness, 39 (97.5%) responded that the system was controllable, 38 (95%) responded that the system had conformity with their expectations, 36 (90%) responded that the system's errors were tolerable, 16 (40%) responded that the system had suitability for individualization, 39 (97.5%) responded that the system was suitable for learning.

Conclusion: The results indicate that the system has responded successfully to the needs of users. Since death data are very important, basic measures are needed to address any deficiencies in the system with the purpose of having higher quality data bases and more accurate health plans.
