Default HL7 to JSON

]Hello Everyone,

looking for a good way to take OBX3.1 and OBX3.2 and add them to a JSON. So basically I need to make the JSON elements based on the OBX segments. There could by any number of OBX segments..

Example, with the following OBX segments, I would need to create the below JSON object..

Example OBX segments:


JSON Needed:

“value1”: “Canned Comment”,
“value2”: “123”,
“value3”: “Text1”
“value1”: “Canned Comment”,
“value2": “456”,
“value3”: “Text2”
“value1”: “Canned Comment”,
“value2": “789”,
“value3”: “Text3”

I think the below code should give you what are looking for.

var encountersObject = [];

//Loop through all PV1 Seigments
for (i=0; i < msg['PV1'].length(); i++) {
//Build Allergies Sub Object
encountersSubObject = {code:{}};

//Encounters.Code Begin
encountersSubObject.code.code = msg['PV1'][i]['PV1.2']['PV1.2.1'].toString();
encountersSubObject.code.originalText = msg['PV1'][i]['PV1.2']['PV1.2.1'].toString();
encountersSubObject.code.displayName = msg['PV1'][i]['PV1.2']['PV1.2.2'].toString();

Hey bhesler thank you for the response..

Since there are usually multiple OBX segments, I came up with something a little different. It seems to work for me:

var empJSON = {}

for each (seg in msg.children()) {
if (seg.name().toString() == "OBX") {
if (seg['OBX.3']['OBX.3.1'].toString() == "ABC")
empJSON.username = "empJSON.username";
empJSON.icon_url = "empJSON.icon_url";
empJSON.text = "empJSON.text";

Not sure if your requirements changed, but this is how to solve the original question.

var obxJson = [];
for each (var obx in msg.OBX) {
        value1: 'Canned Comment',
        value2: obx['OBX.3']['OBX.3.1'].toString(),
        value3: obx['OBX.3']['OBX.3.2'].toString()
