It is acceptable to reach out after a week if you do not hear anything. You can send a short, simple email asking when the company expects to reach a decision. Hopefully with that email the company will be more forthcoming about the hiring process.
The important thing is to be patient. You do not want to come across as rude, and you can always apply to other jobs during this time. If you do not hear anything after a few weeks, then you can go ahead and assume you did not get the position.
