The Gravity Project has developed a data element submission template to gather and review social risk concepts relevant to the Gravity identified SDOH Domains.

We are currently seeking public submissions for social determinants of health data concepts to represent social risk information documented as part of a screening, diagnosis, planning, or treatment activity.

How to Submit Your Concepts for Review as Part of the Gravity Project Data Set Identification Process

We are currently accepting data element submissions of screening/diagnosis/goals/interventions for Health Literacy, Health Insurance Status & Medical Cost Burden.

The Gravity Project team will gather and triage all submissions, assess the information against needed code systems, document available or potential codes, and identify gaps.  The results and gaps will be reviewed and adjudicated with the Gravity Workgroup by domain. 

If you need assistance populating your Data Element Submission Template, please send an email with the subject line "Assistance Request" to gravityproject@emiadvisors.net.  Please include a brief description of issues you are experiencing and the Project Team will respond as soon as possible.

Submitting Goals and Interventions


We ask the community’s assistance in building the list of core interventions for our current in-process domains. The simplest way to frame the ask is help with examples of the programs and professions we refer to, to address these needs. 

We have attached a spreadsheet to facilitate this work.

  • The first tab is a list of current programs and definitions for reference.
  • The second tab is a place for you to name and define the programs and professions you feel are missing (for example, gas vouchers, hospital financial services, etc). There is also a place for you to name the relevant domain. This will allow us to sort your submissions into the domain spreadsheets. 

To submit via spreadsheet template:

  1. Click here to download the Program Submissions Template

  2. Rename the Program Submission Template file using the following format:  orgname_submittername_programs_date.xlsx
  3. Populate with data concepts you currently use or plan to use
  4. Email completed template to gravityproject@emiadvisors.net

The Gravity Project will work with our subject matter experts and the Gravity Project community to adjudicate these terms into domain specific data sets and build them into health terminology to better care for patients with social needs.
