Organisational Health

Occupational Safety, Health and Wellbeing

Organisational health is managed in a challenging environment where workplace hazards, occupational injuries and diseases, and psycho-social stressors are rife, but resources are finite.

Wimmy takes an organisation-wide approach, integrating diverse data sources to get a holistic view of occupational safety, health and wellbeing. Our analytical models help leaders make better decisions, faster. We strive for the greatest return on investment by delivering data science solutions that simultaneously improve health outcomes and operational efficiencies.

In close collaboration with our clients, we co-create tools that provide answers to fundamental questions around the current health landscape and trajectories, the effectiveness of past and ongoing programmes, and the prioritisation of future investments in occupational safety, health and wellbeing initiatives.

What we do


Our team of medical experts in occupational medicine, general medicine, global health and epidemiology provide the insights that give our data context, inform the analytical insights, and perform our medical research.


No matter the study design or data-generating process, our statistical inference methods add depth and nuance in a way that superficial, descriptive analytics can’t.


Health models aid in proactive decision making and can also quantify the health gains made by past decisions. Wimmy has developed insights and predictions, based on  tuneable parameters.

Data Stories

Whether the medium is a dashboard, slide deck or scientific paper, we present insights in an engaging, intuitive and actionable way to achieve the largest impact.


Automation minimises time-consuming, fallible, manual procedures. Our methodology allows for quick deployment and updating of models that support decision making.


Turning studies into publishable documents requires deep expertise in scientific writing. We have over 15 years of experience, publishing in peer-reviewed journals and presenting at international conferences.


 Data governance ensures that data is accessible yet secured, accurate, traceable and consistent. We deploy a suite of data architectures, policies, practices, and procedures.


Solid insights and effective decisions require high quality data. Our training empowers healthcare providers by creating awareness around the importance of quality health data and data governance.


Data engineering provides the infrastructure and methods for sourcing, transporting, storing and wrangling data. Without it, data analytics rapidly turns into a house of cards.

The Wimmy difference

“The epidemiological and statistical models developed by the Wimmy team have accelerated the transformation from what used to be a fragmented, reactive and descriptive approach, to an integrated health system that is forward-looking, action-focused and preventative.”

Dr Elton Dorkin

Head of Health, Anglo American, South Africa

“Wimmy is situated at the intersection of medical science and digital technology, which gives them a competitive advantage to provide high quality consultancy services. We are delighted to be working with the team on our big data and AI project.”

Prof Dr Keymanthri Moodlley

Professor of Bioethics, Stellenbosch University, South Africa

“The Wimmy team is helpful and willing to go the extra mile to enable project success. In addition, they are nimble, which is vital in a dynamic and fast-paced environment where adjustments sometimes need to be made while pursuing a specific deliverable.”

Jacobus Eksteen

Co-founder and CEO, Matogen Applied Insights, South Africa

“Their consultants understood the challenge immediately, thanks to their medical training. Having the ability to interpret and translate concepts from medicine to data analytics and back is a game-changer and sets them apart from other data science consultants.”

Prof Dr Xavier Verhelst

Professor of Hepatology, Ghent University Hospital, Belgium
