OHA’s Opioid Overdose Dashboard has been updated with data through June 30. The data is derived from the nearly 36 million annual coded hospital encounters in Ohio. The release of per-capita rates by county as well as by market area are intended to assist health policymakers, funders and local collaboratives in their work. The data does not reflect overdoses that did not present for care at a hospital or overdoses that occurred among Ohio residents who were cared for at hospitals outside the state.
The opioid overdose dashboard is made available by OHA to help local communities, organizations and local health offices do their research. OHA releases annual and quarterly rates of opioid overdose encounters at our member hospitals.
