Process Improvement Advisory Team (PIAT)

Welcome to the Change Factory!


The Process Improvement Advisory Team (PIAT) is a collaborative work group focused on process efficiencies and cost containment. We utilize Lean Six Sigma practices to identify process improvement projects and implement continuous, incremental change

These changes can include savings of time and money across a variety of areas. We will address these changes to align with policy, compliance and general best practices.


PIAT meets biweekly (once every two weeks) on Thursday afternoons. We invite you to come share your ideas and perspective

Attendance is flexible and all are encouraged to participate.

Contact the Quality Assurance Improvement Manager, Alexandra Stokes (,

if you have any questions or are interested in receiving a calendar invitation to our recurring meetings.
