    • Whoever is assigned as the Web Administrator will need to create new user log ins for staff who need to submit requests to eQHealth under that new Provider ID.
    • New admissions will need to be submitted using the NEW provider ID (new log in).
    • If hospitals have different Provider IDs for Psych and MedSurg, the requestor must use the correct log in to submit review requests for each service.
