Artificial intelligence (AI) algorithms are experiencing growing research interest due to their ability to improve decision making capabilities for promising applications in different economic sectors. The growing shift toward the Internet of Everything environments brought by devices embedded with sensors that can share information brings immense opportunity for new applications (apps). While these new apps thrive in resource-rich areas (i.e., capitals), neighboring cities that lack the resources and infrastructure to support them may be left behind. It is vital that new technologies can reach those who need them the most, especially healthcare-based. This article proposes an app-based approach for long-distance patient monitoring and care. The app would serve as a platform of communication between patients and healthcare staff, where the latter can send standardized video footage or pictures to the former (e.g., their primary care doctor). This feature is enhanced with a recurrent neural network algorithm as a validation tool for healthcare-related videos exchanged between patients and staff. Thus, the healthcare team does not need to check each video for validity, freeing their time for other activities.
