ODMAP—Harnessing the Power of Data to Tackle Our Nation's Opioid Public Health Emergency

Webinar

View a demonstration of ODMAP and learn how two local jurisdictions are using this free mobile tool.

As underscored in the report by the President’s Commission on Combating Drug Addiction and the Opioid Crisis (Commission), “our people are dying. More than 175 lives [are] lost every day” to the rising tide of opioid overdoses. Tackling this national emergency requires the power of collaboration (including the vital partnership between the public safety and public health communities), innovative strategies, and cutting-edge resources—all informed by accurate and timely data to maximize efficiencies and the chance for success in saving lives. One of the tools to support this critical fight is ODMAP. Developed by the Washington/Baltimore High Intensity Drug Trafficking Area (HIDTA), ODMAP provides real-time overdose surveillance data across jurisdictions to support public safety and public health efforts to mobilize an immediate response to an overdose spike. It links first responders on-scene to a free mapping tool that tracks overdoses to stimulate real-time response and strategic analysis across jurisdictions. ODMAP can be used in the field on any mobile device or data terminal connected to an agency’s computer-aided dispatch system, providing the ability to upload data and view the map in actual time.

Overdose Detection Mapping Application Program (ODMAP) Overview

Publication

A comprehensive overview of ODMAP is presented, including implementation, featured training, and an explanation of how ODMAP works.

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.

Overdose Detection Mapping Application Program (ODMAP) Webinar

Webinar

Learn about the Washington/Baltimore HIDTA's free, user-friendly mobile-capable tool, the Overdose Detection Mapping Application Program (ODMAP).
Launched in 2017, ODMAP is used to track the location of suspected fatal and nonfatal overdoses and the administration of naloxone by first responders. ODMAP provides near real-time suspected overdose data across jurisdictions to support efforts to mobilize an immediate response to a sudden increase or spike in overdose events. It links first responders and relevant record management systems (RMS) to a mapping tool to track overdoses to stimulate real-time response and strategic analysis across jurisdictions. An Application Programming Interface (API) has become a popular method for agencies to contribute data without creating additional reporting. The API allows an agency or state’s RMS to share data with ODMAP.
