ABFM Prime Registry FREE to First 2,000 Board-Certified FPs Who Sign Up!
Earlier this month, the American Board of Family Medicine (ABFM) notified CAFP about an opportunity for family physicians to register for FREE with their PRIME Registry. The PRIME Registry can help physicians use the data from their respective Electronic Health Records to assess their care quality performance, reduce their reporting burden and identify gaps in care at the individual patient level. Another major advantage of PRIME is its ability to report for the Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) for free. Registration will remain free for the first 2,000 board-certified family physicians who sign up! For more information, visit the ABFM website or contact them at or 888-995- 5700.
