After publication of the original article [1], it came to the authors’ attention that Figs. 2, 3 and 4 were presented incorrectly. Upon investigation, a change requested by the author at proofing had been misinterpreted, resulting in the Figures and their captions being out of sequence.
Fig. 2
Fig. 2

Distribution of the diagnoses “Injury of unspecified body region” (T14) at the four-digit level

Distribution of the diagnoses “Essential (primary) hypertension” (I10) at the four-digit level

Fig. 4
Fig. 4

Distribution of the diagnoses “Abdominal and Pelvic Pain” (R10) at the four-digit level

The original article has now been updated in order to rectify the error, and the Figures are published in their correct form in this erratum.
