Errors in Text. In the Invited Commentary titled “Measuring Diagnostic Errors in Primary Care: The First Step on a Path Forward” by Newman-Toker and Makary, published online February 25, 2013, and in the March 25 issue of JAMA Internal Medicine (2013;173[6]:425-426), errors occurred in the text. In the third paragraph on page 425, the fourth sentence through the end of the paragraph should have read, “Nevertheless, with more than half a billion primary care visits annually in the United States,6 if these data from Singh et al are generalizable, at least 500 000 missed diagnostic opportunities occur each year at US primary care visits, most resulting in considerable harm. If error rates at the half-billion non–primary care visits6 are similar, the total could be more than 1 million. If even 10% of these (100 000) are easily prevented, and combining this figure with autopsy-based estimates of preventable US hospital deaths from diagnostic errors (40 000/y to 80 000/y1), more than 150 000 patients per year in the United States might have undergone preventable misdiagnosis-related harm.”
