Combatting the Opioid Epidemic using GIS
One pill can kill, one pill can cause addiction. Opioid abuse is destroying lives, devastating families and communities across the United States. Addiction and overdoses are happening in communities from all backgrounds, all ages, in both men and women. Organizations from the Federal, State, and Local levels are using Geographic Information System (GIS) technology to fight back against this debilitating epidemic with data-driven intelligence. ArcGIS can be used to help identify high concentrations of potential opioid diversion, uncover patterns of fraud, and visualize and understand overdose trends with its inherent analytical capabilities. Join government subject matter experts along with Esri professionals, as they show how harnessing the power of data and analytics can enhance map trends, identify areas at risk, and detect fraud schemes.
