Answer Wiki:
Becky, I suggest that each office has a couple laptops with aircards for EHR connectivity during diaster recovery and/or an ISP outage. The probability of the mobile connectivity being unavailable at the same time as your regular ISP provider is highly unlikely. This, of course, only works if there is a cloud application for your EHR. If you are strictly in a client/server environment, then having two ISP's, a primary and secondary, will insure uptime.
