Nancy Neil, Ph.D.
is a senior investigator at Decision Research and an affiliate associate professor at the University of Washington School of Public Health. She began her research career in the late 1980s when she collaborated with Paul Slovic and others on studies related to risk perception and decision making under condition of uncertainty. She now has more than 20 years experience in the domain of clinical decision making, specializing in health economic modeling, outcomes research and clinical performance measurement. She has developed and published numerous clinical and economic decision models, most notably in the areas of pulmonary and cardiovascular medicine, but also for gastrointestinal, urologic, and neurologic conditions .
In its entirety, Nancy’s list of publications encompasses a broad array of topics, including cost-effectiveness, clinical outcomes, burden of illness, quality-of-life, clinical decision support, and applied statistics. In 2003 her work earned national recognition from the American Medical Group Association (AMGA) for Innovation in Health Care Improvement. Nancy’s unusual combination of broad academic and operational experience has given her a unique perspective, which she uses to fashion rigorous, innovative and practical solutions to complex problems.
