In Reply.—We thank Drs Ramunno and Dodds
for reminding us about the important article by Drs Jencks and Wilensky published
in JAMA in 1992.1 Significant progress
has been made in response to the Health Care Financing Administration priority
for clinical improvement in several areas including pneumonia2
and myocardial infarction.3 This is good
news and fits well with the expressed intent of our Editorial. However, it
only applies to the Medicare population, and we need to make such progress
for all of our people.
