The System for Opioid Overdose Surveillance (SOS)

The System for Opioid Overdose Surveillance (SOS) generates actionable data on opioid overdoses in Michigan and is a web-based tool that offers two levels of access: the first level displays county-level summaries and the second level (which is available to authorized public health and public safety users across the state of Michigan) maps non-fatal and fatal opioid overdose incidents in near real-time, while also providing demographic briefs. SOS partners with Michigan High Intensity Drug Trafficking Area, which covers Michigan’s 9 most populous counties, and is operated by U-M Injury Prevention Center teams.
