Nextcloud Hub is used in dozens of universities, hospitals, and medical institutes in various ways, aiding in fighting the pandemic. The DICOM viewer app for Nextcloud in particular is used in Brazil in the fight against COVID-19.

At the Kiel University of Applied Sciences Nextcloud is used in the development of bluetooth measurement algorithms from the OHIOH.de research team. This is a research project using machine learning and AI to improve the accuracy of Bluetooth-based COVID-19 tracking apps where information is collected through “Bluetooth”. The application focuses on research topics to warn and help with required actions in fighting and minimizing the spread of COVID-19.

Nextcloud Hub is currently used to diagnose COVID-19 cases in Brazil, as noted in a press release by the Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH).

To support the global fight against COVID-19, Nextcloud has announced that the upcoming release will feature additional HIPAA compliance capabilities, enabling even more extensive use with medical data.

Moreover, Kiel University of Applied Sciences is generally using Nextcloud as their cloud storage system for professors, employees and students hosted by DFN-Cloud.

Especially in the OHIOH research project, a separate implementation of Nextcloud had been chosen to store research data for the Bluetooth-based warn app development to fight against the spread of COVID-19.
