There were many programs that were available, for diagnosis, prescription information, and an  electronic Rx writer, even medscape had a program that ran on it.

Not only can NFC tags provide medical professionals with information about what treatments a patient should receive, but they can also keep track of when nurses and doctors have checked in with that patient and when. Each time the tag is scanned, the information about who scanned it and when can be transferred to a database. In addition to improving treatment, NFC tags also have potential in the research realm.
