SHPR was established in 2008 when Dr. Ryan Loo left his position at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention as a Behavioral Scientist in the National Center for Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion [NCCDPHP/CDC].


During his tenure at CDC, Dr. Loo successfully managed roughly $33 million in chronic disease prevention multi-state evaluation funding across a wide spectrum of methodologies, settings, and partners. Over his 20-year career in public health evaluation and program management, Dr. Loo has successfully implemented tens of millions in multi-site evaluation funding. His advice is sought by state health department executives across the country due to his extensive knowledge and experience in strategic planning, evaluation, program management, and grant writing.

Dr. Loo serves on several state leadership teams across the country as an expert in evaluation, management, and collaborative chronic disease prevention programming.


Catalyst120 is a secure cloud-based public health management software product. It was designed to eliminate costly single-purpose software systems widely used in government, and still provide public health employees the ability to avoid the inherent inefficiencies of manual coordination and paper data collection.


Catalyst120 was established in 2008 as a first-in-class public health specific program management tool. Since then we have grown to encompass many aspects of public health, from Planning & Evaluation to Patient Databases.


Using our knowledge of the grant application process and CDC reporting requirements, we have created a solution that can seamlessly meet the ever growing needs of the public health industry.
