Fam Pract Manag. 2000;7(4):11

To the Editor:

I was glad to hear about the Direct Observation of Primary Care (DOPC) study and its findings on over- and undercoding [“Identifying Patterns of Over- and Undercoding,” November/December 1999].

Editor's note: See page 47 for the fifth article in our series on the DOPC.
