In Reply We appreciate the letter by Hira et al in response to our article regarding public reporting of percutaneous coronary (PCI) outcomes.1 As the authors note, the Clinical Outcomes Assessment Program (COAP) is a reporting initiative in Washington that is unique and has many strengths, and we appreciate the importance of well-intentioned and thoughtful physicians leading efforts to improve patient care.
