In the 21st century, the free movement of information became quite important with the increase of internet technology. The fact that people can exchange money or data with each other without the need for any intermediary has led to the development of a new economic area under the name of the sharing economy. One of the most important features of the sharing economy is that the parties of the economic transaction establish this relationship through a technological platform. Similarly, allowing peer-topeer transactions and seeing them as a reliable and public platform has made blockchain technology the focus of attention as a digital business technology in various sectors. In this study, blockchain technology, which is considered as the future technology of the sharing economy, is explained within the framework of a health sector model that deals with the partnership between the sharing economy and blockchain technology.
