In the Original Contribution entitled "Statewide System of Electronic
Notifiable Disease Reporting From Clinical Laboratories: Comparing Automated
Reporting With Conventional Methods" published in the November 17, 1999, issue
of THE JOURNAL (1999;282:1845-1850), an error was made in calculating the
95% confidence intervals (CIs) presented in Table 1 on page 1847. Correction
of the CIs did not change the statistical significance of any of the findings.
Several other numerical errors in the table were identified. In the "Results"
section of the abstract, the CIs in the final sentence should read "75\%-85\%"
instead of "77\%-82\%" and "36\%-41\%" instead of "37\%-39\%." No modifications
to other results or comments included in the article are necessary. The correct
numbers and explanatory text are provided
in Table 1 and footnotes.
