Failed cases of mobile healthcare apps: why Kanchufang has failed

Authors: Honggang Tu


Kanchufang has three co-founders. CEO Dr. Martin Shen has more than 15 years of experience as a medical professional. Ciline Xu has spent 11 years in Internet operations and has been involved in running several large online platforms with more than 100 million users. She also has strong connections with the investment community, and that background is a crucial reason why the platform’s developer team can still obtain funding more than 1 year after it was declared a failure. Wang Yuan has 7 years of IT business experience and previously worked at Siemens Healthcare’s IT department.
