Norah L Crossnohere, PhD, is a patient-centered outcomes researcher who is passionate about measuring what matters most to patients and their loved ones. Dr. Crossnohere’s research areas include advancing methods for measuring patient and caregiver preferences; engaging patients to inform medical decision-making, and; evaluating health information technologies.

Dr. Crossnohere has conducted this work in diverse clinical areas including primary care, cancer, pediatrics, and rare diseases. Her training and experience as a researcher at the intersection of social science and medicine have provided her with a robust methodological skillset, and she is experienced in the use of quantitative preference elicitation (e.g. discrete-choice experiments, best-worst scaling, health state utilities), patient-reported outcome measures (PROs), survey methods, and systematic reviews.

Dr. Crossnohere has served as principal investigator and co-investigator on internal and external grants. She is an editor of The Patient-Patient-Centered Outcomes Research journal, a two-time winner of the Lee Lusted Award at the Society for Medical Decision Making, and a member of the Alpha Delta Omega Public Health Honors Society.
