The SARS-CoV-2 has caused tremendous stress in cancer patient care. Millions of confirmed cases and hundreds of thousands of deaths have been reported since the virus first reported in just 6 months ago in January 2020.  While patients with chronic diseases such as hypertension, diabetes mellitus (DM), and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) are particularly vulnerable to COVID19, cancer patients will probably suffer the most from visits due to weak immune system, frequent hospital visits, complicated treatment regimens, and ever-growing costs of seeking in-person healthcare.  In this perspective, we propose a simple workflow based on artificial intelligence (AI) that integrates currently available platforms and resources. The workflow hereby proposed is easy to develop and will promote the entry of the first clinical application of AI in modern medicine.
