A new 'hospital room in a box' could significantly cut healthcare building costs, according to an article on the Business Insider website.
Each unit's features include antimicrobial surfaces that reduce the chance of hospital-acquired infections and grab bars.
MedModular rooms will be unveiled at an October event in Philadelphia. According to their manufacturer, EIR Healthcare, MedModular rooms can be built in 30 days.
The MedModular room also features automatic sliding doors and frosted glass that provides greater privacy and visibility compared to sliding curtains often used at hospitals. A smart window, which can be controlled from a patient's bed, eliminates the need for shades, and the sliding doors reduce touchpoints to help prevent infections.
