Tampa-based WellCare Health Plans, Inc. will lay off 57 employees over the next few months as it outsources its information technology to Ohio-based Accenture, the Tampa Bay Business Journal reports.

About half of the layoffs will be senior quality assurance analysts, WellCare says. The transition to Accenture will be done in mid-February, the Business Journal reports.

Originally founded in December 2006 as an independent grassroots publication dedicated to coverage of health issues in Florida, Health News Florida was acquired by WUSF Public Media in September 2012.
