PRIME Registry provides services, tools and support for a variety of reporting needs

Since 2016, the American Board of Family Medicine’s (ABFM) PRIME Registry has been helping practices report for Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) programs. PRIME’s unique suite of patient and population tools help practices of all sizes provide better care, and align with a growing number of programs that aim to both improve quality and meet patient social needs.

Centers for Medicaid and Medicare Services (CMS) Compliance

PRIME Registry is a Qualified Clinical Data Registry (QCDR) and is an approved vehicle for both Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) and Primary Care First (PCF) reporting.

Primary Care First (PCF) reporting

Primary Care First Model Options is a set of voluntary five-year payment options that reward value and quality by offering an innovative payment structure to support delivery of advanced primary care.

PRIME Registry is able to extract the necessary data from your EHR, map it to the required measures and streamline your PCF reporting.

Making Care Primary

PRIME already has the quality and patient reported outcome (PRO) measures you need for MCP, with an easy to use quality dashboard that simplifies tracking and reporting your scores. PRIME also includes tools for care gap analysis and social deprivation risk scores, plus social resources and an integrated platform for sending PRO surveys, and tracking and analyzing PRO measures.

Thanks to funding from the ABFM Foundation, PRIME Registry remains a low-cost reporting option, and is free to ABFM diplomates. Even better, the MCP program may provide funding to offset the cost of using PRIME.

Are you an ABFM Diplomate Participating in Primary Care First? You deserve Credit!

ABFM Diplomates can receive Performance Improvement (PI) Activity credit for participating in Primary Care First and for submitting one of the MIPS Value Pathways. (We recommend the Optimizing Chronic Disease Management MVP (see below), which includes the Person-Centered Primary Care PRO Performance Measure). Attestation is available in your physician portfolio. Don’t miss this opportunity to get credit for the valuable work you are already doing!

MIPS Reporting

PRIME Registry can help you track your performance on any number of measures your practice selects, and provides a dedicated MIPS dashboard for collecting that data for submission to CMS. Your participation in PRIME Registry includes support for MIPS reporting every step of the way, from selecting appropriate measures, to the required attestations, to the final software interface submission.

PRIME Registry supports MIPS Value Pathways

Simplify your MIPS reporting by taking advantage of the Optimizing Chronic Disease Management MIPS Value Pathway (MVP) available for reporting through PRIME Registry.

What are MVPs? The Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) Value Pathways (MVPs) are the future of MIPS reporting, featuring a subset of MIPS eligible measures which are grouped into a specialty or medical condition. It’s like an easy-order combo menu for MIPS measures.

The Optimizing Chronic disease Management MVP includes these measures:

  • Person-Centered Primary Care (PCPCM) PRO Measure
  • Coronary Artery Disease (CAD): Angiotensin – Converting Enzyme (ACE) Inhibitor or Angiotensin Receptor Blocker (ARB) Therapy
  • Statin Therapy for the Prevention and Treatment of Cardiovascular Disease
  • Controlling High Blood Pressure

ABFM Diplomates can get certification credit for CMS MIPS Improvement Activities (IA)

When selecting an IA in the MIPS dashboard, just search by “Registry Favorites” to find the list of activities that qualify for ABFM credit. If a clinician performs one of these ABFM-approved IA for MIPS, they can then enter that info in their physician portfolio for credit.

Support for Quality Organizations: ACO, CIN, QIN and More!

The Reports module in your registry dashboard makes it easy to output the information necessary for reporting quality metrics for a variety of purposes.

Group Level Quality Dashboard Access

With the Group Performance Dashboard, you can designate a quality manager or other organization member to view and manage quality data across the organization, further simplifying quality data management and benchmarks. This dashboard allows for the set up of specific groups within groups, such as certain locations, physician types or practice groups.

Group Level Reports

The Report tool in the quality dashboard can pull reports by clinician, practice, location and at the group level as well!


With the PRIME Registry quality dashboard, administrators can view performance data at the provider/clinician level, as well as at the practice and location level, making it easier to identify which providers contribute directly to improved care.

Potential for Better Quality Scores

The ease of monitoring quality scores can help you achieve better performance and potentially improve potential payment amount.

In-Depth Support

Your PRIME Registry participation comes with in-depth support for understanding quality scores, data mapping and more

Report Tool

The Report tool in your quality dashboard toolbar gives you access to eleven self-serve, customizable reports that can be generated at the clinician, practice, location or group level. Configure and run reports as needed, or schedule reports to run on a monthly or quarterly schedule—or whatever cadence meets your practice needs.
