When NHS is 'not null':

Be sure to always select all your code and click the CODE button above the comment/question window so it will be displayed in a format that is easy to parse.

It's difficult to say if anything can be optimized without knowing what is returned by output.append(input[0]);. I'm guessing output is a custom object.

But the following long repeat code is easily replaced with a loop
      next.setField(sPID + "PatientIdentifierList[1].IDNumber",'');
      next.setField(sPID + "PatientIdentifierList[1].IdentifierTypeCode", '');
      next.setField(sPID + "PatientIdentifierList[1].AssigningAuthority.NamespaceID", '');
      next.setField(sPID + "PatientIdentifierList[1].AssigningFacility.NamespaceID", '');
      
      ... 

      next.setField(sPID + "PatientIdentifierList[10].IDNumber",'');
      next.setField(sPID + "PatientIdentifierList[10].IdentifierTypeCode", '');
      next.setField(sPID + "PatientIdentifierList[10].AssigningAuthority.NamespaceID", '');
      next.setField(sPID + "PatientIdentifierList[10].AssigningFacility.NamespaceID", '');

Open in new window

Can be reduced to
      var ii = 1;
      while (ii <= 10) {
          next.setField(sPID + "PatientIdentifierList[" + ii +"].IDNumber",'');
          next.setField(sPID + "PatientIdentifierList[" + ii +"].IdentifierTypeCode", '');
          next.setField(sPID + "PatientIdentifierList[" + ii +"].AssigningAuthority.NamespaceID", '');
          next.setField(sPID + "PatientIdentifierList[" + ii +"].AssigningFacility.NamespaceID", '');
          ii++;
      }

Open in new window

2. I don't see anything in this code that generates any output -- certainly not the string that ends with "NHS Number."

Yeah, that solved that bit. Thank you.
It is HL7 messaging., using java script to transform it and the message is in transit.

 var ii = 1;
      while (ii <= i) {
          next.setField(sPID + "PatientIdentifierList[" + ii +"].IDNumber",'');
          next.setField(sPID + "PatientIdentifierList[" + ii +"].IdentifierTypeCode", '');
          next.setField(sPID + "PatientIdentifierList[" + ii +"].AssigningAuthority.NamespaceID", '');
          next.setField(sPID + "PatientIdentifierList[" + ii +"].AssigningFacility.NamespaceID", '');
          ii++;
      }
