about the Founder and CEO.
Why Clinic is inspired by Simon Sinek's Start with Why. As per him- People don't buy what you do; they buy why you do it. Dr.Singh was so motivated by his book and his TED talk. This is when he came up with name "Why Clinic" where he wanted to explain his patients "WHY" of the disease rather than "WHAT" of the disease.
The question came to Dr.Singh's mind how can we activate and engage a patient. Can a PAMPHLET or BOOKLET or an APP activate and engage a patient? Dr.Singh spent next 45 minutes in explaining the patient about the heart failure discharge instructions, anatomy and pathophysiology of heart.
During this time he came up with, “don’t tell the patient just "What" to do but tell them "Why" to do it!” He started receiving many testimonials from his patients and wanted to do something different for mankind. He adopted principles of www.khanacademy.org for self-paced learning. Communicating about their health is the key to save health care dollars and prevent readmissions but some other constraints are- 1-Cultural Diversity 2-Low English Proficiency 3-Low Health Care Literacy

Our inspiration of why clinic starts with this Golden Circle. Simon Sinek explains nicely about this in his book:
Start with why. He uses the examples of Wright Brothers to elaborate this concept. Dr. Singh took a leaf out from his book and started with the concept of Why Clinic.
We believe, as a caregiver, what matters most is how you can trigger and engage the patient in knowing his or her problem and its aftereffects rather than plain old implications. We compare both approaches side by side for a clear understanding.
Lets say you are counselling a young guy in his 30’s for smoking cessation:
The usual approach
