Dr. Susan Kressly is a pediatrician with more than 30 years in general practice, more than a decade in pediatric health IT and 17 years of practice management and payment efforts advocacy. The first 15 years of her career Sue was a part of an independent group practice which was bought by a health system, so she started her own practice in 2004 in Bucks County, PA. Sue was an early adopter of an EHR, which led her to become an “accidental” clinical informaticist. She served as medical director of Office Practicum until the end of 2021.
Sue is the chair of the AAP Section on Administration and Practice Management (SOAPM), the immediate past chair of the Payer Advocacy Advisory Committee and is a member of the Council on Clinical IT, the Section on Telehealth Care, the Council on Quality Improvement and Patient Safety, and the Council on School Health.
