Data to Wisdom Research Consulting

Guiding healthcare professionals through the medical research process.

I can help you tame the research monster.

I’m Mickey Hawes. Data to Wisdom is the consulting service I created to assist motivated healthcare professionals transform disorganized data into publication-ready formats. 

I believe that the first step in the process of acquiring wisdom comes from organizing data and sharing it with others.  

I help professionals:

  • form a research question
  • create a research plan
  • submit an IRB application
  • specify the research process
  • initiate statistical analysis
  • publish results

The data you need may already be available.

In a typical healthcare setting multiple professionals enter data to track various aspects of their daily productivity and patient outcomes. 

Often, that data either remains disorganized or is only used internally.

But this existing data is actually quite valuable, and can serve as the foundation for a variety of research projects.

I can help you understand how to use this type of data for research projects such as retrospective observational studies or as a starting point for randomized control trials.

The concepts of data, information, knowledge, and wisdom come from an informatics model used in nursing. I have adopted this model and applied it to healthcare in general.

She has successfully managed several projects for us over the last three years and performed above expectations despite the challenges the COVID pandemic and clinical environment has thrown at all of us.

Laura Krick, Chief Commercial Officer, Interrad Medical, Inc.

I am a Clinical Affairs professional with 15 years of experience in both pharma and medical devices. I had the pleasure of working with Michelle Hawes on the development of two manuscripts. She demonstrated her expertise in vascular access, data interpretation, and medical writing. These qualities combine to provide invaluable insights to the interpretation and presentation of the study results. Her familiarity and understanding of journal content, mission, and the submission process provided a tailored approach to manuscript development, making sure the target audience was reached. She was focused on understanding the client’s needs and meeting aggressive timelines. I will certainly be returning to Data to Wisdom for additional research consulting work, and would highly recommend anyone in need of vascular access publication expertise get in touch.

Don’t be afraid to do research!

The desire to do scientific and medical research is often met with the fear of starting a process that seems beyond an individual’s capabilities.
But doing and publishing medical research is not something reserved for people with advanced degrees! It’s a step by step process that most people are capable of doing.
Every healthcare specialty is enhanced when the people who are doing the work get involved in publishing their discoveries and observations.

Interview with Dr. Hawes

“Sutures are awesome wonderful irreplaceable wound closure devices. But they’re not securement devices. If you look at their labeling it says, ‘Not to secure external devices.’”

“Sutures were a wonderful stop-gap between the time that central lines really came into being until we got engineered securement. Wonderful stop gap. … But there is absolutely no reason that they should even be a part of the discussion anymore.”

Listen to Blake Hotchkiss, AVA Clinical Education Specialist, interview Dr. Mickey Hawes about her 2022 AVA presentation, “Sutures Are Way Off-Label and Other Fun Facts.”
