Automated Reporting to Improve Primary Care
Primary Care First is an alternative payment model (APM) that rewards value and quality by offering an innovative payment structure to support the delivery of advanced primary care. CMS introduced the program in 2021 and is designed to help primary care practices better support their patients in managing their health with the goal of improving the quality of patient care. The model tests whether delivery of advanced primary care can reduce total cost of care, accommodating practices to assume accountability for patient outcomes. Primary Care First focuses on advanced primary care practices ready to assume financial risk and receive performance-based payments.
To participate in the program and earn the added performance-based adjustment of up to 50% of model payments, CMS requires annual quality measure tracking and reporting. To qualify, practices must meet or exceed the average national performance thresholds on a limited set of quality measures that are clinically meaningful for patients.
