Fraser Health Authority is facing the challenge of targeting their resources in the midst of unpredictable but growing waves of overdoses. Information on overdoses is distributed through siloed channels making it difficult to produce actionable intelligence on overdoses in the region. Such information is useful to medical professionals, social services and other government bodies.
Your challenge will be to produce an application that aggregates information from the media, medical, law enforcement and public sources to produce a database and visual map of overdoses that includes both real-time alert functionality along with historical data-mining of overdoses. Such a tool should be able to show where a sudden surge of overdoses is occurring, creating an early-warning indicator of a batch of bad drugs in a certain area or from a certain source, as well as analytical tools that indicate where overdoses tend to happen at given times of day, days of week and/or locations.
