Downtime of information systems is a universal challenge faced by health care institutions. Regardless of whether downtime is planned or unplanned, the unavailability of essential information requires alternative solutions. In this paper, we conduct a scoping review of how hospitals deal with downtime. A total of 13 papers were included in the final analysis, and we found that coping can be grouped into three strategies; 1) Increasing communication, 2) Analog fallback, and 3) Restricted redundant systems. As the majority of coping mechanisms are related to increasing communication and analog fall back, our findings point to the importance of customizing coping mechanisms for individual healthcare institutions.
