Opportunity in partnership with Kaiser Permanente, HL7 and others!

As grounding, the Gravity Project is a national consensus project that develops and tests data standards to represent and exchange social risk data in electronic systems. Together, with a broad collective of stakeholders, Gravity Project defines the language needed to comprehensively address social risks in clinical and community-based settings. To date, the terminology team has completed 17 social risk domains. This has included building critical screening, diagnosis, goal, and intervention concepts for food insecurity, housing instability and homelessness, transportation insecurity, and beyond. In addition, Gravity data standards are included in the United States Core for Data for Interoperability (USCDI), and their value sets serve as a reference for emerging social risk quality measures.

Highlighted here is a preview of what’s on the horizon as the Gravity Project matures and
recent examples of Gravity standards integration.

The Gravity Project®, an HL7® FHIR Accelerator, is evolving the way it advances social care data integration as a strategy to promote health equity while maintaining continuity with the mission and consensus-based processes that are core to the project. The project is a national public-private collaborative developing, testing, and implementing consensus-based social determinants of health (SDOH) data standards for use across the health, social services, public health, and research sectors. The Gravity community embodies a truly inclusive representation of over 2,500 stakeholder members of its public work groups and governance committees across the healthcare, health IT, community-based, federal and state agency, payer, academic, and patient/ consumer advocacy sectors.

In 2021, HL7 was awarded a cooperative agreement with the Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology (ONC) to prioritize and expedite the development of standards specific to five gap areas including SDOH. Under this collaborative agreement, the Gravity Pilots Affinity Group was launched in September 2022 as a peer-to-peer learning forum for real-world testing of Gravity terminology and technical standards. Pilot sites are invited to demonstrate the use of social care coded terminologies (e.g., LOINC®, SNOMED-CT®, ICD-10®) and/or the HL7 SDOH Clinical Care FHIR Implementation Guide (SDOH CC IG), share implementation lessons learned with other pilot participants, seek/find partnerships for testing, and gain real-world experience.

The HL7 Da Vinci Project recently named eight healthcare technology experts as its 2021 Da Vinci Community Champions. The individuals recognized for this prestigious honor represent the diverse membership of the HL7® Da Vinci Project, a collaborative multi-stakeholder effort including health plans, hospital systems, accountable care organizations (ACOs) and technology vendors. The awards were announced on July 20, 2022, at the monthly HL7 Da Vinci Project member meeting. This is the second year in which the HL7® Da Vinci Project has recognized innovative leaders in health IT who are helping to guide the evolution of the HL7 Fast Healthcare Interoperability Resources (FHIR®) standard.

As a designated HL7 FHIR accelerator program, the Da Vinci Project is a private sector consortium dedicated to improving the healthcare delivery system by accelerating interoperability standards to support value-based care, reduce administrative burden, automate workflow and improve provider teams’ ability to impact health outcomes.

Last year, the Da Vinci Project leadership created the Community Champions Program to recognize and celebrate the talented problem solvers advancing interoperability within the industry. The Community Champion Program puts a spotlight on individuals who display the unique traits of “industry above self, a passion for making the healthcare system work better, supporting others, and promoting change.”
