Nevada Office
of the Attorney General

Population: 3.034 million

Nevada is the 35th most populous state in the country; however, the state consistently demonstrates some of the highest rates of drug overdose mortality in the United States. The Office of the Attorney General (OAG) sought to obtain 80 percent usage of ODMAP within six months of the grant award and concluded the project with all agencies being registered users of ODMAP. The OAG created an API-to-API process from the Nevada Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) State EMS database, Elite, to extrapolate the overdose data from Elite into ODMAP, which provided for more real-time reporting of overdose events. In addition, OAG worked with communities to develop and implement an overdose spike response plan and, ultimately, a multiagency response plan that includes public safety, public health, community partners, behavioral health professionals, health care providers, and elected officials.
