Abstract: There is a need to facilitate cross-project learning in hospital projects. To do this, the Swedish national healthcare project frame and database, PTS (Program for Technical Standard), has been created to provide a framework for Swedish regions when conducting hospital projects. However, the fragmented information currently available and overall structure makes it difficult to embed knowledge and requirements for cross-project learning. In this paper we use an ontological framework to review the current structure of PTS and also propose a conceptual information-structure for machine-readable functional and spatial requirements that can be utilized in a recommendation system for hospital room layout.
