GNUmed could benefit from a default (but modifiable) set of stored settings for 
color selection and intensity to …

        give emphasis to certain kinds of information


        give higher-intensity emphasis to unsigned information

which I suggest would fit under

        GNUmed > Preferences > User interface > 

maybe termed

        Information colourization using GNUmed colourizers

and configurable, I gather, using wxWidgets'

 wxColourDialog which AFAICT GNUmed did not yet use…

also (see Image Sample)

What I am not yet sure about is:

1) is it reasonable that colourizer settings be selectable per-clinician within 
the praxis?

2) on what basis and via what method should the developers pre-determine, or 
should the users themselves configure, what gets highlighted?

The easy-to define configurations are those which are binary:

        measurements that are not signed by any clinician

        measurements that have not been signed by the in-praxis primary

        measurements whose numeric value is outside a bounding range
                or which have been tagged within the praxis as abnormal
                or maybe are outside a praxis-defined per-patient target per 

        same as above, for documents

        (after GNUmed supports the storage of requests:
                measurements that have not been signed
                by the clinician who (last) signed the request)

The only other possibly easy-to-define items might include:

        record of hospitalization where the discharge date is null
