Patient Turnaround Time (PTAT) is the extent of time where a patient is being processed from the start at a hospital until the patient is allowed to go back home. Currently, PTAT in general hospitals around the globe has been highly time consuming as there are a lot of processes to be conducted and patients being untraceable as they go wandering waiting for their turn. Thus, in this paper, we proposed a contemporary Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) based IOT solution in optimizing PTAT that will enable hospitals to: (1) determine Real-time Patient Localization, (2) determine Patient Movement Monitoring using meta-analysis from a systematic review. Although technological solutions exist for each of the elements stated, not many has been able to mold them into a single solution towards optimizing PTAT making it a novel approach to be used. The ultimate goal of this study is the improvement of total waiting time to be less than 60 minutes, which will be helping to reduce the waiting time by 33 percent and prevent patient missing the treatment.
