 EIR Healthcare, the health-focused branch of modular innovation firm, EIR, is excited to announce that it is the recipient of this year's iF Design Award, a world-renowned design prize. The winning product, MedModular, won in the Professional Concepts discipline in the health category. MedModular won over the 63-member jury, made up of independent experts from all over the world, with its focus on bringing efficient industrial practices to the healthcare sector.

Each year, the world's oldest independent design organization, Hannover-based iF International Forum Design GmbH, organizes the iF Design Award. The competition was intense: over 6,400 entries were submitted from 54 countries in hopes of receiving the seal of quality.

EIR Healthcare's flagship product, MedModular, is a factory-made "hospital room in a box," prefabricated and delivered on-site to the healthcare facility. It's the first company linking industrial engineering, ship building and hospital development to garner a solution to the traditionally considered "fixed cost" of hospital development.

EIR is realizing the "hospital of the future" by using modular construction to decrease time (estimated 30-50%) and money spent (estimated 30% savings) compared to traditional construction allowing for budget redistributions from construction to human capital for better patient outcomes.

EIR Healthcare aims to bring its first modularly hospital project to fruition starting in early 2018. For more information, visit www.medmodular.com.
