Q: What is a Group ID? How do I find my Group ID?
A: Group IDs are used whenever a user is authorized to submit data for multiple hospitals (e.g., a hospital system). The Group ID indicates which hospitals are included in the group. For example, if one user is responsible for submitting data for three hospitals, those three hospitals will fall under the same Group ID. Your Group ID can be found under "My Hospitals". All users are given a Group ID, even if they are only permitted to submit data for one hospital.
Q: How do I identify a facility's PFI?
A: To find a hospital PFI, please visit: https://www.health.ny.gov/statistics/sparcs/reports/compliance/pfi_facilities.htm
