NATIONAL POISON DATA SYSTEM
The National Poison Data System (NPDS) is the data warehouse for the nation’s 55 poison centers. Each poison center submits de-identified case data to NPDS after providing necessary poison exposure management and information services to callers. This case information is uploaded to NDPS in near real time, making NPDS one of the few operational systems of its kind. Currently, the time to upload data for all poison centers is 9.50 minutes [7.33, 14.6] (median [25%, 75%]).
NPDS Surveillance System
Since 2000, America's Poison Centers and the CDC have been working together to develop and implement the National Poison Data System as a tool for public health surveillance.
NPDS offers five categories of analytical data products, each customized to fit our clients’ needs, including individual case listings, custom tables, fatality abstracts, surveillance definitions, and case narratives.
