The team handling the Aarogya Setu application has rolled out a new feature to enable businesses to resume their operations while following protocols during the Covid-19 pandemic, the ministry of electronics and IT said on Saturday.
The Open API Service will help organisations check the status of Aarogya Setu users and integrate it into its various work from home features, according to the ministry’s statement.
Any organisation or entity registered in India with more than 50 employees can use the Open API Service of Aarogya Setu. Using the new feature, organisations can check real-time updates and the health status of their employees or any other Aarogya Setu user, who has given consent for sharing information.
The Open API shall only provide the Aarogya Setu status and the user’s name and no other personal data can be accessed using the medium, the ministry said. Firms can register for Open API Service using this link https://openapi.aarogyasetu.gov.in. and use the benefits provided by the Indian government.
