Kathy is a Bay Area resident who is living with a chronic, long-term condition. Over the past year, she struggled to find engaged providers who offered care options that fit her needs. Kathy learned about Tera—a virtual-first approach to primary care that is in the Sutter Health Plus network.
Tera, a virtual-first approach to primary care, is an innovative digital health model that was established by Sutter Health prior to the pandemic. With Tera, a dedicated medical team focuses on helping members live their healthiest lives. The Tera care team includes a primary care physician (PCP), licensed nurse, health coach, and nurse practitioner who all provide in-person or virtual care.
In many cases, a video visit for everyday health needs, advice, or follow-up care can be a quick, convenient alternative to making the trip for an in-person visit.
As we enter the new year, many people are reflecting on the challenging events of 2020—and those that continue to define our daily lives. Some people’s ability to prepare for and effectively respond to the ongoing ups and downs of the times may be waning.

It is normal and quite common to experience stress or anxiety during uncertain times. Adjusting to major life changes—such as transitioning to working from a home office, facing economic challenges, or helping children or teens navigate distance learning—can amplify daily pressures. Sutter Health Plus connects members to high-quality care and resources to support mental health in everyday life.
The way people receive routine healthcare is rapidly shifting, thanks to the availability of convenient telehealth options. For everyday health needs, many doctors, nurses and certified clinicians are able to provide care for a wide range of services and conditions through video visits.
