In 2017, the Washington/Baltimore High Intensity Drug Trafficking Area launched a free, user-friendly, mobile-capable tool known as the Overdose Detection Mapping Application Program (ODMAP) 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 seamlessly feed data to ODMAP.
An informational webinar about ODMAP will be held on May 24, 2019 at 2:00 p.m. ET. This webinar will not address questions about the Bureau of Justice Assistance’s ODMAP Statewide Expansion and Response Grant solicitation, but will focus, instead, on providing an overview of the capabilities of ODMAP and the implementation process.
Learn more about the ODMAP Statewide Expansion and Response Grant solicitation during a webinar on May 30, 2019 at 1:00 p.m. ET. Find more details, including registration information.
