Nanette Nuessle, MD

Kansas City, Missouri Area

I come to CompHealth with 20 years experience in Pediatrics and 7 years experience in Medical Genetics. My experience with 7 different EHRs and a vigorous social media presence has helped me to see the power of technology in medicine. I strive to utilize this technology to bring better healthcare to you and your family. I have not lost sight of the most critical aspect of medicine: when you come to see me, you are trusting me with the most important thing in your world-your children. I will not forget that.

Areas of Expertise

  • EHR Personalization

    My goal is to make streamline honest, accurate EHR documentation into your physicians' workflow. I can create templates for specific parts of a note, or macros for entire notes by diagnosis or by chief complaint. These tools allow physicians to write complete notes with minimal editing time. This can be based on their own personal style of documentation, or something more generic.

  • EHR Implementation

    Are you changing to a new electronic health record? Are you hiring a number of new providers? Have your providers taught by a provider. I understand the common pitfalls of learning a new EHR, or an upgrade of a current EHR. Allow me to help your IT team and providers through these difficult transitions.

    Dr. Nan's ability to take a foreign concept and translate it to something functional, useful and valuable to an organization is a quality that I have always respected. Nan's unconventional methods of problem solving always have a strong focus on her patient's best method of care at heart and enable her to meet patient needs in an innovative, focused manner that is rare in the medical field. Further, her technical expertise makes her a standout that can not only fulfill the role of physician but also make her a key playing within the informatics systems of the organizations for which she works.

    Nanette is an extremely caring and conscientious physician. I first met her when she joined Christie Clinic in 1994 and when our daughter was born in 2000, I did not consider any other pediatrician for her. In the ten years she was our daughter’s pediatrician, she was a tireless advocate for our needs and was always willing to look past the surface. As a Christie team member, I applaud her conscientious use of our electronic health record. She dictated and checked her worklist after each visit. This discipline helped her keep absolutely on top of her patient care tasks. We miss her very much!

    Nanette is an inspired doctor, passionate about the wellness of not only her patients, but of her fellow Team Members. She is always encouraging healthy living at Christie Clinic, and is an inspiration of healthy living, herself. She is also constantly willing to help out in any activity, be it the Wellness Committee, or volunteering her time and ideas for the Christie Clinic Illinois Marathon. Nanette is a great asset to Christie Clinic's department of Pedatrics, and to the Team as a whole.

    I have worked with Dr. Gilpin as a professional colleague at Christie Clinic for the past seven years. She is an extremely hard working physician who takes great care of her patients. She takes quality of care provided to her patients as a top priority in her professional practice. She is a valuable member of the Christie Clinic team who puts in tremendous effort to bring value to her department and to Christie Clinic as a whole.

    After twelve years as parents, my husband and I wouldn't dream of having any other pediatrician for our three boys. We rely on Nan for succinct advice on all of our health concerns (and some of our psychological ones, too!) from infancy to puberty. Her opinions and expertise have never steered us wrong, and she has a great way of reassuring neurotic parents as well as sick children. I'm so glad we made such a great choice from day one.
