Corrigendum: Disparities in Preventable Hospitalization Among Patients With Alzheimer Diseases. Chen J, Benjenk I, Barath D, Anderson AC, Reynolds CF III. Am J Prev Med. 2021;60(5):595−604.

        The editorial office has been notified of the following errors.
        The authors report a data publication error in the tables. One of the provisions of the State Databases Data Use Agreement (DUA), which the authors signed when purchasing the data, is that no data observation involving less than or equal to 10 observations is to be published. This measure was put in place by the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) to protect individual patients’ privacy and to prevent the potential disclosure of personal information. In the manuscript, there are some tabulated cells that are in violation of this provision. The tables have therefore been corrected in the online version to be in compliance with the AHRQ guidelines. The authors state that this error does not affect any of the study results or conclusions. In addition, the rows labeled “Wyoming” in Tables 1 and 2 and Appendix Tables 2-4 should have instead shown “Wisconsin” as the state. The tables have since been corrected online.

            System-level care coordination strategies can be the most effective to promote continuity of care among people with Alzheimer's disease; however, the evidence is lacking. The objective of this study is to determine whether accountable care organizations are associated with lower rates of potentially preventable hospitalizations for people with Alzheimer's disease and whether hospital accountable care organization affiliation is associated with reduced racial and ethnic disparities in preventable hospitalizations among patients with Alzheimer's disease.
