Methods Analytics are a leading-edge technology business using the latest techniques and methodologies, artificial intelligence, machine learning, data science and predictive analytics to enable business success. Methods Analytics were created from a function in the NHS whose role was to help doctors and managers make decisions based on data and information as opposed to anecdote and whim. This team worked as an NHS body for 4 years until an NHS reorganisation abolished the host.

The work they had done at a local, regional and national level led to transformative change across the country. The team had a vision to grow and develop the work they had been able to do in the NHS, and so they founded the company to deliver this. Since then, Methods Analytics has grown, creating products and delivering analytics consultancy across healthcare, defence, police, local government and life sciences.

Mprove combines extensive healthcare delivery, strategic consulting and business development capabilities and experience to help health and care technology startups grow. They codevelop compelling value propositions that resonate with priority NHS customers, ensuring they are consistent with the latest policies, commercial frameworks, financial incentives and local priorities.
