AAPCC was looking for software systems training on their National Poison Data system. The system is used to monitor and track calls to the 60 poison centers in the US to manage and track possible outbreaks and their causes.


Through a grant, Interactive Advantage developed all of the software systems training for the National Poison Data system (NPDS). The NPDS is used to collect and manage all of the poison center calls from the 60 poison centers in the US. 


Interactive Advantage created all of the training for the NPDS system and it was deployed amongst all 60 poison centers in the US to adequately train AAPCC staff at the centers to be able to recognize an outbreak or a trend and make necessary next steps. Interactive Advantage was also responsible for creating their first and only learning management system called the AAPCC training center that they still use to this day.


The American Association of Poison Control Centers, or AAPCC is dedicated to actively advancing the health care role and public health mission of our members through information, advocacy, education and research. AAPCC works with its poison center members to monitor incidences of poisoning and their sources, including household products, chemicals at work or in the environment, drugs, and animal and insect bites.There are 55 poison control centers in the United States. Each provides free, 24-hour professional advice to anyone in the 50 states, Puerto Rico, the Federated States of Micronesia, American Samoa, the U.S. Virgin Islands and Guam. On occasion some have even helped American soldiers serving overseas.
