Helping Practices Stay Viable
PRIME Registry was established by the American Board of Family Medicine (ABFM) in 2016. The ABFMis the only certifying board to run a Qualified Clinical Data Registry and did so because there was not already a resource to help small practices stay viable as reporting requirements ramped up.
A Research and Development Platform
PRIME has also become an important platform for developing and testing high-value primary care measures and getting them endorsed by CMS for MIPS reporting. It is increasingly an important research platform enabling primary care to tell its story about the epidemiology, quality, and effectiveness of front-line practices.
The PRIME Mission
With the PRIME registry, we aim to relieve burden, improve quality assessment/improvement, prioritize measures that matter, and attract resources to primary care sufficient to support comprehensive, relationship-rich care.
