Six Innovative Ways to Manage Your Health

Dec 21, 2022 | 2022, Access, Digital Health, Innovation

In recent years, the number of ways people can manage their health is skyrocketing. Today, it is possible to schedule an annual checkup or same-day video visit, order a prescription for delivery, quickly view lab results, message a care team, and pay a health bill all from a mobile device. In addition to Sutter’s network of doctors, clinicians, and hospitals—which continually focus on exploring new ways of improving the patient experience—Sutter Health Plus members have access to a variety of innovative tools and resources to easily manage their care and coverage and help them achieve their wellness goals.

Managing Care with My Health Online
My Health Online is a user-friendly tool that helps people manage their care—whenever and wherever it’s needed. Using My Health Online, members can schedule same-day in-person or virtual visits with a Sutter clinician, stay connected to their care team, renew prescriptions, view lab results, receive health alerts and text reminders, and access health information, 24/7. The free mobile app is available through the App Store and Google Play.

Accessing Virtual Care
In the past year, the top reasons patients used telehealth options were for convenience, the ability to receive care quickly, and ease of access to their health information, according to a recent study from J.D. Power. For same-day virtual care for common health needs from a computer or mobile device, consider scheduling a video visit through My Health Online. Depending on plan design, virtual visits are available at the same cost share or less than a traditional in-person visit for members. Video visits with a Sutter clinician are available daily from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m.

Managing Coverage with the Member Portal
Through the online self-service Sutter Health Plus Member Portal, members can quickly access important forms, documents, ID cards, and information about their benefits, copays, claims, and change their PCP. Members will also find health management articles, self-assessment tools, and videos on the Health and Wellness Site, available through the portal.

Finding Support for Mental Health
Mental wellness is an important part of overall health. Members may self-refer to in-person or virtual visits with a participating behavioral health provider through U.S. Behavioral Health Plan, California for mental health and substance use disorder treatment services by calling 855-202-0984. Online resources are also available anytime at, including a behavioral health provider locator tool, articles, self-assessments, and informational videos.
