Death Certificates

Dr. Bell
This idea would be easy to implement by bringing amazon-level technology into the picture.

When I fill out a death certificate, I use a pen, electronic or physical.
I might use a computer, but the technique is still 1970s.

I don't have any history so this data is lost.

Why not auto fill with prior ICD9 or 10 codes attributed to this person from the last 10 years? (I don't know the correct number of years.) 
Then machine search for patterns.

This is already done for trauma related deaths.
