Review & Accreditations Director, ORCHA
Paul S Weston is passionate about keeping people out of hospital. As Review & Accreditations Director at ORCHA he gives healthcare professionals and consumers the confidence to recommend and benefit from digital health products that are safe, effective and secure. Paul and his team of Digital Health Assessors develop and maintain Reviews in 12 countries and continually monitor and assess over 3000 products a year.
Prior to joining ORCHA, Paul was Chief Operating Officer at Tiny Medical Apps (Developer of top ORCHA rated asthma app the Digital Health Passport). His work led to inclusion on healthcare frameworks (LPP, G-Cloud, HSSF); maintaining quality assurance certification (ISO 27001/13485, Cyber Essential Plus, DSPT); and product deployment to over 1000 patients in 16 healthcare organisations.
Paul’s commitment to improving health outcomes started with delivering regulation-heavy primary care developments – a journey that impacted over 275,000 patients over 19 years leading ISO9001 certified Architecture businesses. Having seen the growing, untenable demands of in-person healthcare provision, in 2018 he made the decision to explore the role that digital health technology can play in reducing demand on the built environment.
Paul is a London Tech Advocate and One HealthTech (Diversity & Inclusion) Fellow focusing on international partnerships.
