Abstract: A healthcare centre is an organization in which effective treatment is given to patient for their health problems using specialized staff and equipments. Here patient’s information is stored in computer databases and retrieved when the further treatment is needed. At present all the information are stored into database and retrieved with human intervention. The human part of this system is error prone and often leads to inconsistencies in treatment. It may create severe problems in patient’s health related problems. With the advent of technology in the modern era these problems can be eradicated and improvements can be made in patient care by eliminating the unnecessary burden. Even though modern technology is often used in hospitals for many purposes, it is not concentrated in the reduction of patients waiting time. The waiting time cannot be taken lightly as it leads to increase in their blood pressure and mismanage their valuable time, also increasing healthcare centre’s expenses in an indirect manner by providing water facility, air conditioning facility etc. The manual token issuing system maintained in many healthcare centres is obsolete due to the improper handling of the queue by hospital staff. If it is automated through IoT, these problems will be sorted out completely. If a system is designed to reduce the patient’s unnecessary waiting time, it will be of immense importance for both the healthcare centre management and the public. So, this paper provides a solution to eradicate this problem.
