(You do agree with displaying certain measurements in the 
medication plugin, I suppose ?  I am asking since you did
not include that with the above list.)

I can see how it would be helpful, in some contexts, to grasp related information.

When in a medication module, it would be helpful to be aware of

- allergies (which are in view in the allergy area)
- immunosuppressive therapy
- this can be evident while a medication is prescribed
- but it can last beyond discontinuation

and also these:

- renal function
- liver disease
- immune deficiencies (contraindication to live vaccines)
- pregnant state

and when ordering radiologic tests, the following are of interest

- renal function
- pregnant state
- diabetic (as risk factor for contrast nephropathy)

thus the question of how to make them easily and perhaps even compactly (visually) apparent.

I suppose that in GNUmed's header region, beneath the gender and date of birth (if we are not already using this area) could be a good area for

creatinine clearance
or creatinine

and I am wondering how to make this easily configurable, so how about the following idea … see screenshot, where (beneath the gender and date of birth) I have mapped a portion labelled "Area …".

What about allocating this space to one or more measurements, depending how much can fit here? Enabling this could be a menu item [ GNUmed > Preferences > User interface > Header ] more or less like the already existing GNUmed > Preferences > User interface > Medication measurements and offering the user to

Select the measurements panel to show in the Header below date of birth:

(or meta test type, or first non-null subset of a named panel) which could be displayed as

test type 'abbrev' + the value + the units
