The Original Article was published on 13 January 2021

Correction to: Nature Medicine, published online 13 January 2021.

In the version of this article initially published, reference 3 (Stevens, J. A. et al. Aust. Fam. Physician 45, 425–429 (2016)) was incorrectly cited in the second sentence of the third paragraph (“SMAs have also been used in Australia, including for aboriginal populations3....”). This reference should be deleted as a citation in the text and in the reference list (with the remaining references renumbered accordingly). The following new reference should be added to the end of the reference list and should be cited in the first sentence of the final paragraph (“The WHO’s Global Strategy on Digital Health15, which was adopted....”): 15. World Health Organization. (2020). The errors have been corrected in the HTML and PDF versions of the article.
