Care-dependent people need assistance to carry out the normal daily activities. A situation that many of these people have to face up is going to the doctor in order to obtain the needed drugs' prescriptions. This work presents a proposal to enable patients getting prescriptions from home, avoiding going to the health-care center. With the aim of achieving a natural user interaction, something necessary because of the physical and mental limitations of care-dependent people, we have adapted Near Field Communication (NFC) technology. Using a NFC-enabled mobile phone, the user interacts with different tags to obtain the required services in an easy way.
