Paul Tunnah named 4th most influential person in UK health tech


pharmaphorum’s founder Dr Paul Tunnah has been named the 4th most influential person in UK health tech by the Tyto Tech 500.

The Tyto Tech 500 Power List ranks the 500 most influential individuals in the UK tech sector. It was created using a five-stage data-driven analysis process, assessing an individual’s traditional and social media influence as well as prominence at public events. 

There are four factors that combine to provide an influence rank: Personal Influence using Social Media Rank (a combination of LinkedIn and Twitter Reach and Post Frequency; Business Authority using Owned Media Rank (business website or blog domain authority rank); Industry Support (listed as a speaker at a tech conference in the last 12 months); and Amplification through Earned Media (being cited at least six times in the last 12 months in key media).

“I’m very flattered to be recognised as one of the leading influencers in UK health tech, amongst such esteemed company,” Paul said. “Technology is transforming all industries, but in healthcare its impact could literally be life-saving, so it’s great to see the work of the pharmaphorum team and myself reflected in this ranking spanning all sectors.”

The full list of the Top 10 UK health tech influencers is as follows: 

  1. Dr. Michael Mosley – BBC
  2. Ali Parsa – Babylon Health
  3. Jerry Daykin – GSK
  4. Dr Paul Tunnah – pharmaphorum
  5. Shafi Ahmed – Medical Realities
  6. Mike Ward – SCRIP
  7. Maneesh Juneja – MJ Analytics Ltd
  8. Matteo Berlucchi – your.MD
  9. Vishal Gulati – Draper Esprit
  10. Dr Victoria Betton – mHabitat

On the overall list, which includes 500 influencers from 20 tech subsectors including Health, Paul was ranked 101 – an impressive feat considering that only 14% of the list is made up of journalists, and there are only 20 health tech influencers featured in the top 500 list.

Paul founded pharmaphorum in 2009. He is a recognised author, speaker and industry advisor on content marketing, communications and digital innovation, having worked with many of the world’s leading pharmaceutical companies and the broader ecosystem of healthcare organisations.
