14ish years ago, I was doing custom computer/network builds and installs for the medical and dental industries.  For Medicaid/Medicare billing, the machines had to be equipped with an ISA 56k modem.  They were almost impossible to find, we had to buy USRobotics because they were the only people still making them.
