why do we consider NADH in the formulation of ATP?

This is much more biological, but in relatively simple terms, the energy created by breaking the H off of NADH is used to drive the ATP reaction. :)

NADH is involved in the cellular respiration pathway to produce ATP and is involved when NAD gains a hydrogen atom to create the biphosphoglycerate molecule (the NAD also abandons its inorganic phosphate).
