Performance Improvement Advisory Team
Who We Are
Chair: George Barroso
BSR Contact: Peggy Jones-Gonzalez
The Performance Improvement Advisory Team (PIAT) is comprised of providers and consumers acting in an advisory capacity to both Behavioral Science Research (BSR) and the Miami-Dade County Office of Management and Budget-Grants Coordination (OMB-GC).
What We Do
PIAT advises the Continuous Quality Improvement (CQI) Program. The CQI Program is a system-wide and provider quality assessment, management and improvement program that aims to assure equitable access to high-quality care, improve clinical outcomes, maximize collaboration of stakeholders and coordination of services, ensure high quality customer service, and ensure compliance with Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) mandates.
PIAT uses input and guidance from providers and consumers to establish standards, outcomes and other measures. The knowledge that providers and service recipients bring to the quality improvement process is indispensable in creating an effective CQI Program.
PIAT’s activities include, but are not limited to, developing quality initiatives; recommending solutions, interventions, and improvement actions; establishing key indicators for service categories; assisting in development of record review tools; designing outcome measures; and reviewing results of record reviews.
PIAT functions in a strictly advisory capacity; it does not set policy, provide accreditation, or rate providers, and is not a committee of the Miami-Dade HIV/AIDS Partnership.
PIAT membership is voluntary. Meetings take place bi-monthly on the third Friday of the month from 9:30am to 11:30am at Behavioral Science Research.
