Following publication of the original manuscript [1], the authors noted several errors in Table 1.

Table 1 Administrative algorithms for 30 morbidities

Details of the requested corrections are shown below:

  1. 1.

    Chronic pain – added 3 ICD-10 codes to the far right column that are equivalent to the 3 corresponding codes in the ICD-9 column. Neither the ICD-9 nor the ICD-10 codes are used in Canadian data, but we have corrected this for completeness. We thank Mr. James Wilton for pointing this out.

  • G89.0 for 338.0 central pain syndrome

  • G89.2 for 338.2 chronic pain

  • G89.4 for 338.4 chronic pain syndrome

  1. 2.

    Also for chronic pain – replaced 2 hospitalizations or 2 claims or 2 ACCS in 30 days or less with 2 hospitalizations or 2 claims or 2 ACCS in 30 days or more. We thank Ms. Feng Ye for pointing this out.

  2. 3.

    For Diabetes – replaced the reference to Hux 2005 with a reference to Hux 2002.

  3. 4.

    Myocardial infarction – replaced “1 hospitalization” with “1 most responsible hospitalization”. We thank Dr. Ping Liu for pointing this out.

The correct version of Table 1 is included in this erratum with the changes marked in bold.
