To the Editor In a recent Research Letter, Yang et al1 argue against public reporting of short-term percutaneous coronary interventions (PCI) mortality at the site level for physicians practicing at multiple sites. They state that in New York’s 2014-2016 Percutaneous Coronary Interventions report,2 15 physicians who performed PCI at multiple sites are outliers in one of the sites but only 4 of the 15 are outliers when data from the multiple sites are combined. However, the report itself, which was not cited as a reference by Yang et al,1 identifies only 6 site-specific outliers among physicians performing at more than 1 site, with all but 2 (one of which had lower-than-expected mortality) also identified when all sites are combined.2pp35-49
