Once a month, a regional dermatology round is held by the dermatology clinic at Nus with participation from the hospitals in Östersund, Sunderbyn and Sundsvall. The round utilizes videoconference with ability to simultaneously show clinical images and focuses on complex cases where the specialists want to discuss how to manage and treat the patient. Benefits include faster processing of patients and a more equitable healthcare in the region. The round is routine practice since January 2014.
