In the Viewpoint entitled “Time for a More Unified Approach to Pediatric Health Care Policy? The Case of Congenital Heart Care” published in the October 27, 2015, issue of JAMA,1 it should be clarified that reporting programs across states may be either voluntary or mandatory. In the sixth paragraph, the third sentence should read “Currently, several states have public reporting programs (either mandatory or voluntary), including New York and Pennsylvania, and the Society of Thoracic Surgeons recently began a voluntary national program.” This article was corrected online.
