BSO - The Framework for Care

HOME BSS Web Icon.png

The BSO framework is made up of three foundational pillars the purpose of which is to redesign system and capacity building to ensure long-term sustainability.

Pillars 1& 2 address system collaboration and integration through coordinated, cross-agency, cross-sectoral partnerships, where roles are clearly defined and processes promote ?seamless? care so the client receives timely access to the right provider for the right service.

Pillar 3 identifies capacity building in the system by strengthening both current and new health human resources (HHR) and ensuring new knowledge and best practice skills for continuous quality improvement. The HHR provided through the project will allow for the creation of mobile multidisciplinary teams, localized clusters of behaviour services and community resources.

Pillar 1 - System Coordination and Management

Framework Trillium.pngCoordinated, cross-agency, cross-sectoral collaboration and/or partnerships based on clearly defined roles and processes are required to facilitate seamless care. 

  • Establish system management through a coordinated network of service providers and regional coordinators with accountability to Local Health Integration Networks  (LHINs)
  • Initiate integrated, collaborative intake, transitions and referrals.

Pillar 2 - Integrated Service Delivery: Intersectoral and Interdisciplinary

Outreach and cross-sector interdisciplinary transitional teams across the continuum enable equitable and timely access and transitions to the right provider for the right service

  • Introduces collaborative/shared care service delivery through mobile interdisciplinary cross-sector and system support teams, case management and intersectoral frameworks and communication vehicles
  • Value the least restrictive / intrusive approach: enhanced approaches and services that promote early detection and health promotion; specialized residential treatment.

Pillar 3 - Knowledgeable Care Team and Capacity Building   

Education and training strengthen the capacity of family caregivers and professionals. The goal is person-directed care, prevention and early detection; implementation of standardized best practices in behavioural health; and continuous quality improvement.

  • Help families make informed choices
  • Create supportive learning infrastructures and foster collaboration between individuals, teams, organizations, systems
  • Nurture cutting edge research and apply new technologies
  • Support efficient, effective use of human resources and evidence-based decisions.
