To create this resource ACP has collaborated with ORCHA, which conducts the app assessment and hosts this app library. Working for numerous national health services and other organizations around the world, ORCHA has completed over 17,000 assessments on 7,000 apps. Learn more about ORCHA’S assessment process.

ACP members and their staff have free access to the ACP library with the following benefits:

  • Detailed assessments of 26 weight management apps that meet minimum quality standards
  • Tool to recommend apps to patients and keep a log of your recommendations
  • List of apps you mark as “favorites”

Try out this new resource and tell us what you think. Member feedback will provide input to determine whether to expand this library and offer it as an ongoing resource to ACP members.

Please Note:

  • The App Library is not currently integrated into EMR systems, which we recognize is a barrier to usability, and this will be addressed in the future. If you select "keep me logged in" and bookmark the library homepage after logging in, this may make it easier to return to the site without additional log-ins.
  • If you would like to share this resource with your staff such as dieticians or other health professionals who counsel patients on weight management, please feel free to send them the ORCHA website link and share the upgrade code, ACPPRO.
