HCCI is deeply saddened by the loss of our colleague, Carole Bashaw.
Carole was one of the longest-tenured HCCI staff members and was instrumental in the development and management of HCCI’s health care cost transparency website, Guroo, which led to the successful launch of an all-payer claims database and enhanced cost transparency website for the state of Florida. Carole was directly responsible for providing previously unavailable health care cost information to residents of the state of Florida.
We knew Carole as a warm and intelligent person, with a love of live music and her dog, Alice. As her colleagues, we shared stories, laughs, pet photos, gripes, bowling and cooking classes.
We will miss Carole’s diligence, selflessness and tenacity, and offer our sincerest condolences to her friends and family in Minnesota and beyond.
