As a fellow not-for-profit company, BSRI strives to build on strengths and resources of local agencies to create a stronger, healthier community. Capacity building services often include exploring creative and traditional revenue streams, coalitions and collaborative movements currently operating within communities, and training or workforce development opportunities. We often find that community-based agencies are true experts regarding their services and local needs, and that they offer a unique perspective that makes them extremely resourceful.
BSRI also provides capacity building for organizations looking to enter a more research-focused arena. For example, BSRI can work with students and/or residents on conducting research for the organization (e.g. for quality assurance around NCQA standards) and can assist with the development of patient/client registries and de-identifying data for analysis. We have a team of attorneys assisting us and are fully trained in HIPAA and Healthcare privacy compliance.

BSRI provides onsite training and technical assistance on a number of topics both in group and individual organization settings. Specifically, BSRI has provided training on Screening, Brief Intervention, and Referral to Treatment (SBIRT), evaluation, and integrated care; and refresher training on the Respect intervention and Motivational Interviewing constructs. BSRI also facilitates specific training related to fidelity of evidence-based practices. Finally, BSRI is happy to provide targeted training and technical assistance to assist organizations in capturing evaluation data based on their programmatic strategies, and facilitate linking those data to specific activities.
