OHA Overdose Data Sharing Program

The Ohio Hospital Association launched this interactive dashboard in April 2018 with downloadable files to provide state, regional and county-level data on opioid overdose encounters at Ohio hospitals to assist local community health and human services organizations as they address the crisis at the local level. OHA will release annual and quarterly rates of opioid overdose encounters at our member hospitals.

About the Data

OHA data are derived from the nearly 34 million annual coded hospital encounters in Ohio. The data, which is updated quarterly, is sorted  by gender, race and age range of the patient along with marketplace totals and county level per-capita rates. Data after 2016 includes additional detail on the demographics within the regional marketplaces. 

The release of per-capita rates by county, as well as by market area, is intended to assist health policy makers, funders and local collaboratives in their work. The data do 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.

This data set is encounter-level and does not reflect individual patients. OHA worked with third-party experts to assure data in the release protects patient privacy. For the initial release of the data in 2018,  OHA analyzed annual data from 2008-2016 and then began quarterly analyses.
