Mmm...... really need a screen as huge as Times Square. If wishes for 
fishes.... But seriously, 

*Clinicians know from their appointment book which they keep time on how much 
time is pre-assigned
*All computers have current time in bottom left corner of toolbar and that's 
how we tend to see how we are running to time
*You know as you work how much of the patients problems you have dealt with. I 
can't see how that is something we need to include - its your individual work 
*Finally, yes we could display a one-liner somewhere showing eg how many 
minutes left till next appointment - or going red to 'overdue...

Somehow, I think these are individual clinician decisions, and that whilst I 
think some sort of time prompt is useful as I mentioned when responding to 
your idea, I don't think this is a huge issue for us now to the extent you 
describe below.
