How can I find my Provider ID?

Question: Connect Care prescribers are sometimes asked for their "Provider ID" (identifier) but do not know how to find it.

Context: The Connect Care Provider ID is a unique identifier assigned to a healthcare provider. There is only one such number in Connect Care for a particular practitioner. 

Other provider identifier types may refer to things like roles with more than one number possible per provider.

Answer: The fastest way to find a Provider ID for the currently logged in user is to use Chart Search (search box at top right of Hyperspace) to find the "Session Information Report".

Use "Session" as a keyword in Chart Search and then "Jump to" the "Session Information Report".

Within the Session Information Report, look for a section entitled "Login Information" in the left column. The Provider ID is in the row labelled "Linked Provider:", with the actual ID in square brackets after the provider's name.
