(This amendment eliminates $50,000 from the general fund in the second year for the "No Wrong Door" system in the Department for the Aging which was earmarked for SeniorNavigator to provide support to private providers who will interact with the system. In the initial stage of developement, the "No Wrong Door" system is designed to improve statewide access to long-term care services for the elderly. The system will develop a computerized uniform assessment instrument to screen the elderly for state long-term care services and a web portal which will allow sharing of this information by multiple state agencies. Remaining general fund support for this initiative of $504,184 will enable the department to contract with a software developer for the "No Wrong Door" system and develop the in-house expertise to manage the system in future years.)
