    At the end of 2018, New England Donor Services (NEDS) renewed its focus on two areas: 1) increasing the total recoverable tissues amongst its referred tissue donor potential and 2) reducing the frequency of cases ruled out for tissue donation just before recovery could take place. By utilizing machine learning, a model algorithm was built to prioritize incoming tissue potential referrals in consideration of these two areas. Machine learning, the model algorithm, and its implementation into NEDS' Tissue Operations will be discussed and explored.
