Evaluation Briefs

Each Evaluation Brief covers one of the six (6) RODA Strategies around which the Program is organized around. The Briefs highlight progress made for each activity, during years 1 and 2 (9/1/2019 – 8/31/2021), including barriers encountered, and recommendations for year 3.

Morbidity and Mortality Reports

RODA disseminates monthly overdose morbidity and mortality reports. This data includes Emergency Department – Syndromic Surveillance and Mortality data – and California Electronic Death Registration System data.

EMS Surveillance Reports

A partner of RODA, Emergency Medical Services Agency, disseminates monthly reports on suspected opioid overdoses using FirstWatch data. This provides an in-depth overview of suspected overdoses, Naloxone administration, and the type of drugs mentions in overdose calls.

Overdose Data Dashboard

The Riverside County Overdose Data Dashboard displays data on fatal overdoses, opioid-related emergency department visits, and opioid-related calls to poison control. Maps are based on census tracts and are interactive to allow the user to view more detail when a census tract is selected. Demographic data such as gender, age, and race/ethnicity, are also displayed on the Dashboard.
