A proposed SyS Case Definition for Opioid Overdose Related ED visits- an evaluation in three regions

Description: 

Opioid ODs have been rising globally and nationally. The death rate from ODs in the United States has increased 137% since 2000, including a 200% increase of OD deaths involving opioids1. The pilot project, a collaboration across 3 states, allowed information sharing with Syndromic surveillance (SyS) partners across jurisdictions, such as sharing a standard SyS case definition and verifying its applicability in each jurisdiction. This is a continuation of the work from an initial pilot project presented during the ISDS Opioid OD Webinar series.

Objective:

The objective is to develop a standard opioid overdose case definition that could be generalized nationally
