The use of technology in the healthcare sector has recently increased during the pandemic. In recent months, due to COVID-19, alternative healthcare delivery methods, i.e., telemedicine or virtual treatment, have gained popularity. Telemedicine as a mode of delivery of health care services, where distance and in-person visits to hospital appears to be very limited, plays a significant role in delivering healthcare and providing adequate cancer care and surveillance in patients. The use of technology in the health sector is known, but with COVID-19 pandemic, its use has accelerated with newer healthcare innovations. Its extensive use in clinical care settings, especially in cancer care, provides an alternative solution to work more ingeniously and offer effective communication methods despite various restrictions.
