Ripple Effect Mapping, Impacts and Opportunities: Results from the Ripple Effect Mapping Discussions Among Organizations Funded Through the Health Equity in Prevention Initiative

In 2013, the Center for Prevention at Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Minnesota (Blue Cross) provided funding to 13 organizations through the Health Equity in Prevention (HEiP) initiative to advance health equity through policy, systems, and environmental (PSE) changes. In order to represent this complex work, we employed a relatively new evaluation method, Ripple Effect Mapping, to capture and understand the more holistic impacts of the work of each organization in their local communities. Between late 2014 and early 2015, 10 of the 13 funded organizations held Ripple Effect Mapping (REM) discussions to better understand the intended and unintended impacts of the HEiP projects. This is the aggregate report.
