Innovate with ACP

The field of digital health technology is exploding with solutions that aim to transform how medical care is delivered and to enhance the partnership between physicians and their patients.  The American College of Physicians wants to help that promise become a reality by widening its support for innovation in medicine.

ACP Startup Advisors Network

The ACP Startup Advisors Network connects digital health entrepreneurs to experienced ACP members who can offer real-world input on product development. Startups often have access to only a limited range of physicians and practice settings for feedback and concept testing, but when these entrepreneurs engage with ACP members through the Startup Advisors Network, they benefit from the experience of ACP members around the world. There is no cost for either advisors or startups to participate in the Startup Advisors Network, but startups are screened for relevance to internal medicine before being accepted into the program.
