Incorrect Data Reported

JAMA. 2018;319(14):1510. doi:10.1001/jama.2018.3681

In the Viewpoint entitled “Hip and Knee Replacements: A Neglected Potential Savings Opportunity,”1 published in the March 13, 2018, issue, incorrect data were reported. The sentence in the second paragraph should have read as follows: “In 2017, the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development reported that hip replacements in the United States increased 22% (from 167 to 204 per 100 000) and knee replacements increased 22% (from 185 to 226 per 100 000).” This article was corrected online.
