In this blog post, learn how to set up a solution that enables school districts to notify a targeted group of parents about school bus breakdowns and delays via the parent’s preferred method of communication (i.e., phone call, SMS, or email), when a bus driver reports it. This solution uses AWS services like Amazon Connect and Amazon Pinpoint to create a solution in which a bus driver can call an automated system, report the bus breakdown, and start an outbound notification to parents notifying them of the event and potential delay. Through the same process, the system notifies parents that the bus is back in service or provides alternate instructions for student pickup.

Supporting state agencies with Medicaid unwinding outreach: Creating a multi-lingual two-way messaging system
A key focus for the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) and state Medicaid agencies is making sure those eligible for Medicaid maintain coverage and supporting transition to alternatives.
