PRIME Registry: Building the Future of Primary Care

The PRIME Registry is unleashing the potential of patient and community data to build better primary care, helping shift the focus beyond individual disease diagnoses to measuring what really matters to patients and clinicians. Join PRIME Registry, and help shape the future of primary care.

PRIME Includes:

More Measures that Matter—through PRIME’s improved array of high-value primary care measures with demonstrated connection to improved outcomes and quality of life.

Doctors and patients agree that Patient Reported Outcomes (PRO) is meaningful. The PRO pilot launched in PRIME in April 2019 gives patients a voice, while giving clinicians valuable feedback. The PRO will roll out to all of PRIME later in 2019.

Improved Health for Communities:

PRIME’s quality dashboard helps identify patients with quality gaps and helps practices see how they are doing compared to their peers.

The PHATE tool helps identify patients at risk due to social determinants and provides an in-clinic connection to resources in the patient’s community, while also illuminating areas where resources are needed. PHATE has the potential to help guide more personalized risk-assessment and access to patient resources.

Reduced Burden for Clinicians:

PRIME’s quality data tracking and benchmarking, paired with the implementation of more “measures that matter” (comprehensiveness, continuity, PRO, low-value care) enables participating physicians to demonstrate high value in practice which has the potential for a positive affect on payments from both CMS and private payers.

Special Offer for ABFM Diplomates

American Board of Family Medicine Diplomates are eligible for three years of PRIME enrollment FREE. After the first three years, the price per Diplomate is only $260/year.

Performance Improvement Activities Approved for ABFM Continuing Certification Credit-20 Points

The ABFM’s PRIME Support and Alignment Network, in collaboration with the University of Colorado-Denver, Department of Family Medicine’s e-Learning team have leveraged the power of Bodenheimer’s 10 Building Blocks of Primary Care and best practices from the landmark, federal Transforming Clinical Practice Initiative to help you improve in three areas:

  • Person- and Family-Centered Care
  • Cost and Value of Care
  • Care Across the Medical Neighborhood

Create your own PDSA cycle intervention using PRIME Registry or other data for tracking your improvement.

Complete one of these three activities—hosted on the University of Colorado’s e-Learning platform—for 20 ABFM PI activity credit points.

Click Here to access activities, then select Register and use the code: ABFM, if Diplomate, otherwise, non-ABFM certified clinicians use the code: TCPI

Completing one of these modules will satisfy requirements for Performance Improvement Activity/MOC Part IV for family medicine physicians and possibly other specialties.

Special For PTN enrollees-Performance Improvement Activities Approved for ABFM Continuing Certification Credit-20 Points

ABFM board-certified family physicians who are enrolled in a Practice Transformation Network (PTN) as part of Medicare’s Transforming Clinical Practice Initiative, may apply for 20 Family Medicine Continuing Certification/Performance Improvement activity points by completing a questionnaire on their PTN-related Performance Improvement activities–no uploading of quality measures necessary!

To complete this questionnaire, log in to your ABFM Physician Portfolio, click on “PTN Participation” located under the “Spotlight Programs” section on the left hand side of the screen, and follow the prompt to START the attestation process.

*Note that Residents are able to receive 20 Family Medicine Certification points for completion of this activity, however, this will not fulfill the “minimum of one (1) Performance Improvement Activity with patient population.” The 20 points will, however, help Residents reach their minimum 50 points requirement.
