Aarogya Setu has worked on a new innovative feature called ‘Open API Service’ to help businesses and the economy to start functioning while being safe.
The service can be availed by organizations and business entities, who are registered in India with more than 50 employees and can use the Open API Service to query the Aarogya Setu Application in real-time and get the health status of their employees or any other Aarogya Setu User, who have provided consent for sharing their health status with the organization.
The Open API shall only provide the Aarogya Setu status and name of the Aarogya Setu User (with user’s consent). No other personal data shall be provided through the API.
The Open API Service enables organizations to check the status of Aarogya Setu and integrate it into its various Work from Home features. The Open API Service of Aarogya Setu, addresses the fear/risk of COVID-19 infections and helps the people, businesses and the economy to return to normalcy.
Aarogya Setu has been powering India’s fight against COVID-19 since its launch on 2nd April 2020 and has now emerged as the most downloaded contact tracing app in the world, with more than 15 crore users. More than 6.6 million Bluetooth contacts have been traced and percentage positive of those who have tested is almost 27%.
Since its launch, Aarogya Setu has continuously innovated and introduced more novel features like e-pass integration, QR Code scanning, sharing of health status with family/known persons – all of which have been very effective in keeping India and Indians safe in line with the motto of Aarogya Setu – Main Surakshit, Hum Surakshit and Bharat Surakshit.
