DataIQ’s prestigious awards honours companies and individuals that have demonstrated excellence in the data industry over the past 12 months.
London – 5th October, 2022 – Methods Analytics, an end-to-end data services provider, was announced as the recipient of the 2022 DataIQ Awards in the Persuading with Data category of the Data Literacy stream for the entry Responding to Covid-19: The UKHSA data science partnership persuading with data. DataIQ announced the winners at the awards ceremony on 29 September 2022, in London. Methods Analytics worked throughout the Covid-19 pandemic to collaborate with multiple directorates in order to provide an efficient and effective response to the pandemic in a rapidly changing-environment. The capabilities of Methods Analytics included forecasting patient levels for the NHS through various statistical models projecting hospitalisations, providing estimates and confidence intervals to chief medical officers to avoid the system becoming overwhelmed. Thanks to these efforts and the evidence provided by the data, policy-makers were able to make data-led critical decisions regarding restrictions, testing sites, vaccination campaigns and more.

It is a great honour to receive this award from a panel of our industry peers. It was great to work as part of the pandemic response with excellent colleagues at UKHSA. We are incredibly proud of the hardwork and commitment of the team, and I would like to thank past and present members of the team who made this possible, and UKHSA, for giving us the opportunity to work on such an important topic.”
