Hacking Heroin - Data and Background Information

Data

Overdose data - includes date, time and location of overdoses across Cincinnati.  This data will be useful to several challenges.

This overdose data is part of the Cincinnati Fire Incidents (CAD) dataset -- it is available on the Cincinnati Open Data Portal in several formats.  Note: to narrow in on overdoses, filter for Heroin under Incident_Type_ID; clean duplicate or cancelled results from Disposition_1_Text.

You can also check out Cincinnati's CityInsights Heroin dashboard -- available here.

For challenges involve treatment centers, teams might consider seeing if they can build on the Open Referral standard.  https://openreferral.org/
