Greenland is the World's largest island with a population of 56,421, resulting in the lowest population density globally with an estimated yearly incidence of 40 and a prevalence of around 334 haematological patients. Geographical conditions and no full-time employed haematologist require extraordinary solutions. A well-established collaboration between regional health centers, Queen Ingrids Hospital in Nuuk and Copenhagen University Hospital - Rigshospitalet in Denmark is an important aspect in order to achieve evidence-based medicine. This review suggests a model for tele-communication, short-term specialist visits and long-term planning.
