COVID-19 Impact on US National Overdose Crisis
Nationally, in 2018, there were over 67,000 drug overdose deaths with opioids representing nearly 70% of all overdose deaths. 67% of all opioid-involved overdose deaths involved synthetic opioids. Data released from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) displays a decrease in fatal overdoses from 2017 to 2018, however, there is an absent methodology nationally to track non-fatal overdoses. ODMAP offers the ability to collect both suspected fatal and non-fatal overdoses, in real time, across jurisdictions, to mobilize a cohesive and collaborative response.
ODMAP provides near real-time suspected overdose surveillance data across jurisdictions to support public safety and public health efforts to mobilize an immediate response to a sudden increase, or spike in overdose events. It links first responders and relevant record management systems to a mapping tool to track overdoses to stimulate real-time response and strategic analysis across jurisdictions.
ODMAP was developed and is managed by the Washington/Baltimore HIDTA. Click here to learn more about the w/B HIDTA.
Each agency wishing to participate, signs a data sharing agreement which is designed to protect the data within the system. Once signed, they can begin uploading data in real time through a variety of methodologies as a Level 1 user. They can also access to the ODMAP dashboard, which allows users to view nationwide data and receive custom reports as a Level 2 user. This tool is only available to government (state, local, federal, or tribal) agencies serving the interests of public safety and health.
