About Us

Gravely Group was founded in 2018 by Steve Gravely. After more than 30 years in Big Law, Steve decided he wanted to do things a bit differently… Gravely Group operates virtually (and was doing so pre-COVID) and leverages technology in an effort to provide smarter, more efficient, and more affordable legal services to clients in the digital health sphere.

Steve Gravely, JD, MHA

Steve Gravely is principal author of the Data Use and Reciprocal Support Agreement (DURSA), a first-of-its-kind legal framework to support nationwide health information interoperability, and he is nationally recognized as a provider of strategic counsel to cutting-edge initiatives in the digital health space.

  • 40 years in the healthcare industry
  • 30 years providing legal counsel to healthcare organizations
  • 10 years focusing on digital health issues including EMRs, interoperability, health information exchange, and cybersecurity

Steve’s unique perspective on healthcare originates from his experience as a firefighter and EMS provider during college. Today, Steve serves as a volunteer member of the National Ski Patrol, responding to accidents on the mountains. First responders must be calm, skilled, and able to use whatever resources are available to overcome immediate challenges- and it’s this “first responder” mentality that Steve brings to his work representing healthcare organizations on complex legal and strategy issues.
