Machine Learning to Improve Organ Donation Rates and Make Better Matches

Machine Learning to Improve Organ Donation Rates and Make Better Matches Deadline: 2019-10-12
Award: $150,000
Open to: Canadian Corporations*

Artificial Intelligence (AI) is poised to transform the field of organ donation and transplantation in Canada. Existing clinical decision support tools include: a tool that provides a standardized and personalized assessment of donor and organ suitability to make decisions about organ retrieval; and, a similar tool that helps kidney failure patients determine if they should accept the donor kidney or wait for a better match. While these tools can be used to help improve clinical decisions in donation and transplantation, AI experts are needed to use Deep Learning to continually enhance the predictive ability of these tools towards improved circulatory determined death (DCD) donation rates and to identify the best potential donor-transplant recipient matches.
