The PRIME Mission
The PRIME registry aims to relieve burden, improve quality assessment and improvement, prioritize measures that matter, and attract resources to primary care to support comprehensive, relationship-rich care.
What is PRIME Registry
PRIME Registry is the largest national Qualified Clinical Data Registry (QCDR) for Primary Care. PRIME Registry was established by the American Board of Family Medicine in 2016 to help provide family physicians and primary care clinicians a faster, easier way to evaluate practice performance, with a suite of built-in tools designed to improve primary care practice and patient outcomes, and reduce the burden of reporting for CMS payment programs (like the Merit-Based Incentive Payment System and Primary Care First), at no extra cost.
Who Can Participate in PRIME Registry?
PRIME Registry is open to all Primary Care Clinicians, including Family Physicians, General Internists, General Pediatricians, Nurse Practitioners, Physician Assistants and many other clinical team members.
How PRIME Works
Either via software interface (PULL) or file submission (PUSH), PRIME maps the data in your practice Electronic Health Record (EHR) to the quality measures you choose, and calculates a performance score for each measure. Those scores and the performance trend details are then presented in an easy to use dashboard that allows clinicians and practices to view and track measure performance data at the practice, clinician and patient level.
