—In the Editorial entitled "Bridging the Gap Between Research and Practice," published in the January 8, 1997, issue of THE JOURNAL (1997;277:155-156), a sentence with incorrect wording appeared. On page 156, in the sixth full paragraph, the second sentence, beginning with "Then there is the Health Care Financing Administration...," should be replaced with the following sentence: "Then there is the National Committee for Quality Assurance, which accredits and monitors the performance of HMOs and administers the Health Plan Employer Data and Information Set (HEDIS) used by the Health Care Financing Administration and others to assess quality of care."
