Briarcliff Manor, NY – Digitech Computer, Inc. announced the release of an expanded edition of their award-winning PCR Lens data quality tracking system on Feb. 5, 2014. PCR Lens aggregates and displays data collected by medics in the field, making it easy for EMS leaders to measure and compare its completeness and accuracy. EMS World magazine, a publication of Cygnus Business Media and voice for the EMS community, named PCR Lens from Digitech the winner of a 2013 Product Innovations Award.

“We’re now connecting the community of PCR Lens users by providing a new package of global reports,” says Walt Pickett II, SVP of Implementation and Support for Digitech. “Each agency will easily be able to see how they stack up against comparable services and understand at a glance where their major data collection challenges lie.”

The data quality tool, included with Digitech’s EMS billing service, focuses on a number of patient demographic and insurance identification data elements collected in the field and provides EMS administrators and leaders a means to measure and improve field data collection. The new suite of reports will push data monthly to all Digitech clients who have integrated PCR Lens while maintaining the anonymity of each individual agency. Global reports will go out to all clients, while each agency will receive detailed, individualized reports. Reports on each subscribing service will continue to be available in realtime to chiefs, administrators, and QA/QI analysts.

“We’ve seen some impressive improvements in receivables from services using the tool,” says Mark Schiowitz, Digitech’s CEO and President, “Now, by using Digitech’s Shared Information Program, the entire system can be compared to other similar systems to identify long term data collection improvement goals.”
