Pro­teus Dig­i­tal Health, a Red­wood City, Calif.-based “smart-pill” startup, Molly O’Neill has named as its chief com­mer­cial of­fi­cer.

O’Neill, 51, pre­vi­ously worked in busi­ness de­vel­op­ment po­si­tions at sev­eral ma­jor health sys­tems, most re­cently Tenet Health­care Corp. In her new role, she will fo­cus on de­vel­op­ing part­ner­ships with in­sur­ers, health sys­tems and other providers.

Pro­teus cus­tomers swal­low an ingestible sen­sor, which is em­bed­ded in a cap­sule con­tain­ing generic medicine.

Once in­gested, the sen­sor com­mu­ni­cates with a re­ceiver patch worn by the pa­tient and sends data to a smart­phone or other Blue­toothen­abled de­vice that can show whether the pa­tient took the medicine and re­port on other met­rics.
