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. ODMAP links first responders and relevant Record Management Systems (RMS) to a mapping tool to track overdoses to stimulate a 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 I user. They can also access the ODMAP dashboard, which allows users to view nationwide data and receive custom reports as a Level II user. This tool is only available to government (state, local, federal, or tribal) agencies serving the interests of public safety and health.
Currently, there are nearly 1,700 agencies in 45 states (including Alaska, Hawaii, DC, and Puerto Rico) who are utilizing the tool, and more than 91,000 overdoses have been entered. Due to the success of the program, the ODMAP User Community has developed significantly, which includes a monthly webinar series, online repository for material developed by users, weekly interactive demonstrations, and a monthly newsletter. The goal is to further support and facilitate collaboration, communication, and coordination within the community.
