Is a portable digital electrocardiography machine a must for every clinic?

In brief: No

Ecg's are readily available in many locations but not all clinics will have enough volume to justify having their own machine.
For example, a gynecologist's office may order several ecg's per month while a clinic that does family practice may order several in a day. A cardiology clinic probably couldn't function without a way to do many many ecg's per day.
