Nationally, over 72,000 drug overdose deaths are estimated for 2017 with the largest increase in deaths related to fentanyl and synthetic opioids. Unfortunately, we lack a consistent methodology to track overdoses, both fatal and non-fatal, in real time across jurisdictions, which is necessary to mobilize a cohesive and collaborative response capable of addressing these issues within our communities.
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.
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.
