Valid NPI Number Generator

If you're in the health care industry, you might be familiar with the term National Provider Identifier (NPI). This is a number used to identify medical providers in many various systems, including the SureScripts network.

The thing about NPIs is that you can't just throw any 10 digits together, as you can for many dummy data elements (such as SSNs).

Here's a handy piece of JavaScript for helping you to generate the appropriate check digit for your NPIs. Just another reminder that other people have probably already solved most of the problems I encounter. :-)
