About The Data

Data for this report is collected from a wide variety of sources. QRT data is collected from each individual QRT Team (Avon, Avon Lake, Elyria, Lorain, Lorain County Sheriff’s Office (LCSO)) with the help and facilitation from the clinical teams at Fireland and LCADA Way. Warm Hand-Off data is collected from Let’s Get Real (LGR). Safe Medication and Storage data is collected through mailed-in postcards to the Mental Health, Addiction and Recovery Services (MHARS) Board. Overdose data (non-fatal and fatal) is collected through the Overdose Detection Mapping Program (OD Maps). Overdose mortality data is collected from the Lorain County Coroners Office. All data is updated/collected on a monthly basis. For demographic, outcome and reach data, QRT data and WHO data is only included IF contact was made with an overdose survivor. Overdose data is collected from the police/EMS departments that are signed up on the software program and are willing to participate. The number of overdoses presented is not a complete representation of all the overdoses occurring in Lorain County.

New World OD Report 
This is a summary of the overdoses that have been reported in the New World data system used by most of the police department jurisdictions in Lorain County. This includes the following police departments: Amherst, Avon, Avon Lake, Elyria, Lorain, North Ridgeville and all townships/villages covered by the Lorain County Sheriff's Office. 

Limitation of this data:
1. Will only be recorded if these recorded the incident type as: drug overdose in the New World data system.  
2. Data on Narcan used is not consistent. Different police departments do not enter this data point consistently across New World. Could mean the officer, EMS, Fire Department or bystander administered the Narcan. 
3. The amount of Narcan used at an incident is not able to be tracked in the New World data system at this time. 
4. This information is only from cities who use New World. This does not include the police departments who are not participating (Vermilion, Sheffield Village, and Oberlin).
5. This data will not include incidents where EMS handles the overdose and police do not write a report due to various reasons.
6. Overdoses could be put on the Overdose Detection Mapping Software Report as well as the New World Overdose Report, which is there there is a need for two separate reports at this time. 
This data is not a full representation of all the overdoses occurring in Lorain County at this time

OD Maps Report

Limitations of this data include:

2. Most EMS and Police Departments are not entering into this system due to the time it takes to double enter into this software with their reporting system they are already using. 
3. Overdoses could be put on the Overdose Detection Mapping Software Report as well as the New World Overdose Report, which is there there is a need for two separate reports at this time.
