The amount of health data created in the world is increasing exponentially every day. Existing technologies such as data storage, fast processing of stored data, and data security are still sufficient, but it is predicted that some problems will most likely occur. The positive effects of blockchain technology have attracted attention on issues such as ensuring that people avoid direct contact in the pandemic, saving time, facilitating international cooperation, and reducing paperwork. Blockchain technology allows for the elimination of an authority or a central server. This feature makes data processing processes incredibly fast. It allows patient health data to be stored regularly, transferred quickly, and easily anonymized when necessary. In this way, the needs of patients who continue their treatment at home or in the hospital can be determined in advance. The drugs to be used, the necessary medical devices, and the treatment to be applied can be determined quickly, and, if necessary, the product supply can be automatically procured in advance and made ready.
