Overdose Detection Mapping Application Program


What is ODMAP?

The Washington/Baltimore HIDTA developed the Overdose Detection Mapping Application Program (ODMAP) in 2016. 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 overdoses. 

Oklahoma officials were first introduced to ODMAP in April 2017 during a meeting of the Oklahoma Commission on Opioid Abuse. The nine-member Commission includes members from the Oklahoma House of Representatives and the Senate, law enforcement, medical community, and the private sector. As part of their final recommendations, the Commission encouraged the use of ODMAP in Oklahoma to track suspected overdoses across jurisdictions, identify hot spots, respond to spikes, and educate the public. In response to the Commission's recommendation, the Oklahoma Bureau of Narcotics led the state's efforts to implement ODMAP in Oklahoma.

Currently, 96 agencies in Oklahoma are registered for ODMAP. First responders in Oklahoma have entered 1,564 suspected fatal overdoses into ODMAP since January 2018.
