zkIgnite 3: Ozkar

Overview of the Ozkar Healthcare Project

Ozkar is actively engaged in the development of tools, infrastructure, and content to establish a robust and thriving healthcare ecosystem on the Mina blockchain. With a primary focus on integration, Ozkar recognizes the unparalleled opportunities presented by Zero Knowledge Proof (ZKP) technology, offering a unique avenue to connect blockchain with healthcare IT systems while simultaneously ensuring enhanced privacy guarantees.

Problem Statement

In the dynamic landscape of healthcare IT, developers encounter significant hurdles when attempting to integrate advanced cryptographic technologies, specifically Zero Knowledge Proof (ZKP), with healthcare information systems. This integration is pivotal for elevating privacy and security in healthcare applications, particularly when handling sensitive patient data and complying with stringent regulatory requirements. The existing ecosystem lacks accessible, developer-friendly tools and infrastructure that seamlessly integrate these technologies with established healthcare standards like FHIR (Fast Healthcare Interoperability Resources).

This gap inhibits innovation and the development of healthcare software that can fully harness the privacy-preserving potential of ZKP without compromising interoperability or user-friendly development practices. Developers often grapple with complex integration processes, creating barriers to entry, especially for small to medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) or independent developers. Consequently, the potential for creating a new generation of secure, interoperable, and user-centric healthcare applications remains largely untapped.

The Ozkar project seeks to address this problem by offering a comprehensive suite of tools, infrastructure, and content, streamlining the development of ZKP-enabled healthcare applications. By prioritizing the integration of ZKP with the FHIR standard, Ozkar aims to empower developers to swiftly and effortlessly build applications that provide unprecedented levels of privacy and security for patient data, thereby addressing a critical pain point in healthcare IT.


Ozkar’s solution revolves around providing tools and infrastructure that maximize interoperability with the FHIR standard, ensuring that the development workflow aligns as closely as possible with conventional software development practices using FHIR.

The first phase of the project focuses on simplifying the development workflow within one of the most widely used standards in healthcare. By doing so, Ozkar aims to break down initial barriers surrounding the intersection of blockchain and healthcare. Once the Mina Bridge becomes available, this will pave the way for other blockchains to integrate with real-life healthcare data, expanding the scope and potential impact of blockchain technology in the healthcare sector.
