“The SNIS meets annually with the CEOs and senior executives of the various companies that make products we use,” said Dr. Meyers. “We review important issues regarding patient care and safety, plan improvements, and make recommendations for future research and development.”
The topic of the meeting this year was Stroke Systems of Care and Dr. Meyers had speakers from the National Institutes of Health, Joint Commission, the National Association of Emergency Medicine Physicians, and the American Heart Association. SNIS physicians met with industry leaders from Johnson and Johnson, Stryker, Covidien, Abbott, Zoll and others to work on issues related to stroke care.
