Following publication of the original article [1], the authors would like to correct a sentence in the second paragraph under the heading Discussion.

The sentence currently reads:

The Beta-Binomial model was originally proposed by Ball, and further development of the Binomial model was introduced in his recent safety monitoring paper as well [27].

The sentence should read:

The Beta-Binomial model was originally proposed by Ball, and further development of bridging blinded and unblinded analysis was introduced in Lin’s recent safety monitoring paper as well [27].
