$ uscan --verbose
-- Scanning for watchfiles in .
-- Found watchfile in ./debian
-- In debian/watch, processing watchfile line:[\d\.]+/gnumed-client\.([\d\.]+)\.tgz
-- Found the following matching hrefs:
Newest version on remote site is 1.1.12, local version is 1.1.12
 => Package is up to date
-- Scan finished

So the watch file seems to be perfectly OK and uscan does its work.
However, I'm afraid you are mixing up things here.  Uscan is to inform
the Debian *developer* about new upstream versions.

I have no idea what you mean by "... my 1.1.2 client reported that ...".

Are you talking about any GNUmed client feature?  This is barely basing
on uscan or the watch file information.  Or are you talking about your
update mechanism of the distribution you are using which is not
detecting new package versions?  In this case it also has nothing to
do with uscan but rather with your configuration what releases should
be regarded (/etc/apt/sources.list and /etc/apt/preferences).

Hope this helps
