The Delaware Opioid Metric Intelligence Project (DOMIP) – provides community surveillance capabilities in Delaware to help reduce its prescription and illicit drug problems.  DOMIP achieves this by integrating data-on overdose deaths, crime, population characteristics and community resources into a user-friendly web application called the DOMIP Mapping app. The mapping app contains six-years (2013-2018) of integrated data that will allow for unprecedented community surveillance, statistical analysis and mapping of a wide range of opiate and crime-related metrics, at the US census tract, zip code, Delaware House District and county levels.  Users can also select layers to view where overdose deaths are concentrated and plot treatment resources therein. Such information will inform best practices that assist efforts to reduce the negative impact of the opioid problem on all Delawareans.
