The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) Primary Care First (PCF) program is a new alternative payment model designed to support the delivery of advanced primary care. The program began in 2021 and it will examine whether financial risk and performance based payments that reward primary care clinicians will lower Medicare costs and improve health care quality. PCF participants must annually report data on specific quality measures, including the quality measure Advance Care Plan (ACP) which requires a Qualified Registry or QCDR vendor for reporting since it is not an EHR reportable measure. As a CMS Qualified Registry, MDinteractive can support practices participating in the program by reporting this measure on their behalf.
Please note: Cohort 1 practices must report ACP using a Qualified Registry or QCDR for PY 2021; Cohort 1 practices that fail to do so will not be eligible for a positive performance-based adjustment (PBA) in PY 2022.
