Picking up the phone is point-to-point while I need
broadcast. I can shout "Emergency!" all day long in my
exam room and no one (besides the patient) will hear me.

Too bad. It's nothing to be relied upon. The client is
typically running 99% of the time. And it neednt't be a
silent message either.

Better perhaps, sufficiently is the question. Duplication
means redundancy (backup strategy, that is) which in case of
emergency communications has always been the norm.
