Clarification of clinical quality measure. In the article, “Home Blood Pressure Monitoring,” (September 2021, p. 237) the third paragraph of the Best Practices for Home Blood Pressure Monitoring section on page 241 discussed the clinical quality measures related to home blood pressure monitoring. It erroneously stated that a validated home blood pressure cuff reading could satisfy measures from the National Quality Forum in 2020. This paragraph has been clarified to address the limitations based on measure year and interpretation. The sentences now read: “Using a validated home blood pressure cuff for home blood pressure monitoring counts toward some hypertension quality measures depending on the measure year and interpretation.27,28 The electronic clinical quality measure for 2022 from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services allows readings taken by a remote device and conveyed by the patient.29”
