Web Maps and Apps
The Public Health Geographics team develops mapping applications, map viewers and geo-integrated content for ISDH programs and community partners. Below is a collection of PHG-supported products available on-line. Currently, most applications operate on mobile devices, but interfaces are not designed for mobile screens.
ISDH Stats Explorer
Stats Explorer makes finding and exploring Indiana health data easier. Stats generated by ISDH divisions and partners are collected and provided as charts, maps, and tables in a searchable single resource. Annual county counts and rates for many reportable diseases and conditions are available.
The Lead Risk Map gives public health partners, medical providers, and the public the ability to assess the risk of childhood lead poisoning in a neighborhood by simply entering an address. Census tract risk is calculated using elevated blood lead levels as a weight for contributing risk factors such as housing age and poverty status for those under 6 years of age.
Indiana Health Districts and Regions
The Health Districts Map provides a one-stop shop to explore program-specific districts for various ISDH divisions and partners. If available, district contact information can be obtained by clicking map. Updates are conducted as requested by program areas or through surveys.

Child Fatality Review Teams
The Indiana Child Fatality Review Teams attempt to better understand how and why children die, take action to prevent other deaths, and improve the health and safety of our children.

The Overdose Prevention Therapy-Indiana, or optIN, registry allows nonprofits, pharmacies, local health departments, addiction treatment facilities, correctional facilities and other entities to register as providers of naloxone, a non-narcotic medication that reverses life-threatening respiratory failure that is usually the cause of overdose deaths. Developed by ISDH OTC.
