The Overdose Mapping and Application Program (ODMAP) provides near real-time suspected overdose surveillance data to support public safety and public health efforts in mobilizing an immediate response to a sudden increase or spike in overdose events. It links first responders and records management systems to a mapping tool to track overdoses and stimulate real-time response and strategic analysis across jurisdictions.
Agencies are able to upload data in real time via mobile device, view nationwide data, and receive custom reports.
The ODMAP team released the new National Map in January 2021, featuring enhanced analytics, single sign on, and an enhanced design.
The system currently serves agencies in all 50 states, including the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico. Over 3,700 agencies participate in ODMAP, with over 28,000 users nationwide and 850,000 overdose events logged. Additionally, there are seventeen states with statewide implementation strategies, including several with legislation requiring reporting to ODMAP.
At the end of 2021, ODMAP marked its fifth anniversary and is looking forward to continuing to work with stakeholders to provide real-time, cross-jurisdictional suspected overdose event data and analytics to help save lives across the country.
