In this episode of Medtech Matters, a podcast focused on the medical device manufacturing industry and the factors impacting it, we speak with Giovanni Di Napoli, president of Gastrointestinal at Medtronic. He shares insights on several of Medtronic’s gastrointestinal diagnostic devices, including the Pillcam—a pill-sized camera a patient swallows to gain views of the digestive tract. The device provides an alternative to a colonoscopy as a first-step procedure. Additionally, Di Napoli gives information about the capabilities of the AI-driven GI Genius technology. Specifically, the following questions are addressed.

  • What types of medical technology does Medtronic offer through its Gastrointestinal unit?
  • Let’s focus specifically on the Pillcam. What is this technology and is it an alternative to a colonoscopy?
  • Given the movement to expand telehealth we are seeing as one result of the pandemic, how does this align with the functionality and benefits of the Pillcam?
  • Why is Medtronic teaming up with Amazon around the Pillcam at home program and what are the goals of this collaboration?
  • What is GI Genius and how does it tie to the Pillcam?
  • Any chance you can give us any type of scoop on the next steps for the GI Genius technology?
