is there a way to register for processes state changes from userspace ?

I'm developing an application that needs to know if any of its clients (different processes) terminated or got killed by a signal.

Currently I'm implementing it by looking at the specific PID procfs directory.
Is there a better way to achieve that ? Something like netlink notifications for subscribed processes will be great...
