In the Original Investigation titled “Quality of Care for Elderly Patients Hospitalized for Pneumonia in the United States, 2006 to 2010” published online September 8, 2014, in JAMA Internal Medicine (doi:10.1001/jamainternmed.2014.4501), there was an omission in the Conflict of Interest Disclosures. The paragraph should have read: Dr Hausmann reported receiving support from a Veterans Affairs Career Development Award (RCD 06-387). Dr Nsa and Ms Auden reported being employees of the Oklahoma Foundation for Medical Quality (OFMQ), a Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) contractor, and participated in the study as part of their employment duties. Dr Bratzler reported serving as a technical advisor and consultant for OFMQ and Telligen, being employed as full-time faculty for Oklahoma University Health Sciences Center, and receiving grant support from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Dr Fine receives annual royalties from the chapter he authored titled “Community-Acquired Pneumonia in Adults: Risk Stratification and the Decision to Admit” published in UpToDate and has ownership of mutual funds that invest in companies in the health care sector.
