CME Hiatus: July Through December 2002

JAMA. 2003;289(20):2649. doi:10.1001/jama.289.20.2649

Incorrect Numbers: The Original Contribution entitled "Change in the Quality of Care Delivered to Medicare Beneficiaries, 1998-1999 to 2000-2001" published in the January 15, 2003, issue of THE JOURNAL (2003;289:305-312) contained some incorrect numbers. The following Table amends Table 2 on page 307 of the original article by presenting the corrected values in the "Congestive Heart Failure" columns. In Table 3 on page 310, the value in the "Weighted average 2000-2001" row of the "Breast Cancer" column should read 60. In the same Table in the "Median state rate" rows of the "Lipid Profile" column, the values should read: 60 for the years "1998-1999," 74 for the years "2000-2001," and 76 for the "Weighted average 2000-2001."

None of the errors in Table 2 affected the baseline rankings or the national medians reported for the measures, which used the correct values when calculated, nor did they affect the summary values in Table 3 , which also had been calculated using the correct values.
