The state of Arizona has a program for first responders to report any out-of-hospital suspected opioid overdoses, suspected opioid overdose deaths, and out-of-hospital use of naloxone to treat opioid overdose. Emergency medical services, law enforcement and other first responder agencies are required to complete this data use agreement and submit it to the Department of Health Services acknowledging their responsibility to protect personal identifiable information and personal health information when reporting incidents to the AZ-PIERS system.
