After accidental overdose became the leading cause of death in the state, Ohio started developing quick response teams (QRTs) in several counties as a response to the crisis.

As more QRTs started forming in Ohio, the state began to build infrastructure to support coordinated and aligned activities in partnership with Cordata’s Community Navigation Platform, which helps connect data and streamline the day-to-day actions taken by QRTs.

The goal of this infrastructure is to strengthen QRT operations, provide training and support to existing QRTs, and collect data to understand the scale and impact of the QRTs in Ohio.

Today, the majority of counties in Ohio have deployed QRTs with Cordata, providing comprehensive care navigation for impacted individuals as well as providing data and reporting critical to program evaluation and efficacy.
