France-based gospel musician Mireille Lasme out with ‘Baba God’

Published

on

Gospel music lovers are about to enjoy a new song from Paris-based minister Mireille Lasme.

The song titled ‘Baba God’ is in an Afrobeat vein and offers adoration to God for his loving-kindness and tender mercies to humankind.

The danceable piece of music, done in key A Minor, also evinces Mireille’s exceptional vocal prowess, one that keeps the listeners enamoured of her exceptional musical talent.

Mireille Lasme released her first single ‘C’est avec Joie’ (With Joy) in 2017, an ode to her love and commitment to God.  From humble beginnings, she contemplates how far God has brought her.

‘C’est avec Joie’ was followed in 2018 by ‘Jésus t’aime’ (Jesus Loves You). This was very simple but powerful because nothing runs as deep as God’s love for his children.

Mother of three (3) children and wife to the anointed man of God Pastor André Lasme, Prophetess Mireille Lasme is currently preparing a new opus – new songs featuring African rhythms inspired by her recent crusade in Nigeria.

The upcoming opus speaks to our Christian walk, its highs and lows but above all our guaranteed triumphs with Jesus.

‘Baba God’ is available on Aftown, YouTube and all other online streaming platforms.

I look forward to welcoming each and everyone of you to Accra, capital of the country at the centre of the world. Together, let us join hands and help accelerate progress towards the realization of the SDGs. We owe it to the next generation to live in a world free from poverty, disease and the degradation of the environment.”

Must-Have Products When Embarking On Anti-Aging

Published

on

Embarking on your wise ages shouldn’t be nightmarish; rather, it is embarking upon another beautiful journey of your life yet again.

 

However, many get scared to begin this journey, fearing what it will do to their skin. Needless to say, no matter who you are, the effects of old age will show up on your skin.

 

But, there are definitely some ways in which you can alter some of the anti-aging or delay them to get that healthy, youthful glow on the skin. This is why you need to change your daily night routine and incorporate some anti-aging products.

 

Do not worry!

 

You do not have to apply some nasty chemicals to the body in order to get that youth back to your skin. You can do it with the best anti aging products on the market. 

 

There is no shame attached to using anti-aging products because there is nothing wrong with caring for yourself.

 

You can even start using these products a little before aging commences!

When To Start Using?

This is a big question that we often hear people talk about. When to start using anti-aging products.

 

Of course, your teens are a little too early for anti-aging products. However, due to the stresses in your 20s, emerging wrinkles are not uncommon. Thus, you can start using an anti-aging product in your late twenties.

 

There are many anti-aging products and even anti aging skin practices which you can begin pretty soon. So, your mid-twenties would be a perfect time to start using anti aging products. 

 

If you have never used anti-aging because you are gifted with amazing skin, then right before menopause would be the correct time to start using these products.

 

With the hot flashes of menopause, you will need them!

Anti-Aging Products You Need!

Here are some of the anti-aging products which you absolutely need in your skincare routine.

1. A Collagen Product

Whether you are someone who is applying it in the form of cream or you are someone who is in taking it, collagen is an important ingredient that you will need when you are planning for your anti-aging skincare.

 

Collagen supplements can help you break down the collagen in your body and reform the glow on your skin. With age, your body’s properties to break collagen weaken, so these supplements will help you. 

2. A Night Cream

The cell turnover of your skin weakens with time. This is what wrinkles and dry skin are when you are aging. This is one of the reasons you need to incorporate a night cream immediately into your routine.

 

The night cream helps your skin to rejuvenate and repair all the skin cells overnight. So, when you wake, you are left with beautiful glowing skin. It also helps to repair the tissues, and some of the signs of aging, like wrinkles, can diminish from the daily application of night cream.

3. A Sunscreen

The sun is your enemy when you are planning to get rid of some of the anti-aging properties. Not that sunscreen is particularly for the purpose of anti-aging, but you should never leave your house without it if you wish to not get wrinkles early.

 

The UV rays of the sun are the worst for your skin. So, it is not just the aging; it is also skin cancer that sunscreen will protect you from.

4. A Refreshing Deodorant

When you get near your menopause years, hot flashes are something you have to intensively prepare for. This is when women get very hormonal, and this can increase the sweat in the sweat glands.

 

Sweating is just something that accompanies it. Thus, you should get yourself a good refreshing deodorant. This will not only keep you feeling fresh all day but also protect you from heavy sweating, which can be very difficult.

Fight Aging With Grace!

Fighting the early signs of anti-aging or the ones you get after menopause doesn’t have to be tiresome. With some products in the market, you will be able to fight them with grace.

 

Plus, there are some other practices which you can try like Yoga, drinking plenty of water, and changing your diet a little.

 

Accept your new phase with pleasure!

What Is An RVU In Medical Billing?

Published

on

Medical billing relies on claim filing to earn compensation. However, before submitting any claims, hospitals must first issue a bill that charges the patient for any medical services provided by the doctor.

The medical biller inserts the cost of all medical services based on particular criteria such as CPT/HCPCS codes in this bill. The hospital administration is responsible for paying doctors for their services based on the relative value units (RVU) once the reimbursement has been completed. The RVU plays a vital role in adequately compensating doctors for their services.

What is RVU?

Relative Value Units, or RVUs, are a set of standard values issued by Medicare to assess the cost of services. It is easier to compensate doctors depending on their output with the help of RVU.

RVU’s Objectives

In medical billing, the RVU is used to determine the worth of a doctor’s productivity. The RVU is used to calculate the doctor’s services so that he or she can be compensated. In some ways, relative value units are used to define the amount of effort a doctor does when delivering medical care to patients.

It’s worth noting that the RVU differs from doctor to doctor, depending on their specialty. For example, a surgeon undertaking a complex procedure like Coronary Artery Bypass Grafting(CABG) is likely to maintain a high relative value unit. As a result of the procedure’s rigor, the surgeon’s remuneration is extremely substantial in the case of CABG. The RVU for a general dentist, on the other hand, maybe lower than that of a CABG surgeon.

Determining the RVU

The three important components described below define the relative value units for various doctors:

The doctor’s or physician’s work: It evaluates the amount of talent, time, training, and effort that a doctor must devote when completing a procedure. The CPT code is updated at least every five years to maintain the RVU for each procedure.

The cost of keeping a practice open: This cost is calculated by adding together the costs of equipment, supplies, personnel, and rent.

The provider’s liability or malpractice cost: The costs of liability and malpractice insurance vary by provider. In comparison to specialties such as obstetrics, malpractice premiums for general care physicians are projected to stay inexpensive.

Work RVUs, practice expense RVUs, and malpractice RVUs are the 3 types of RVUs.

Understanding how relative value units function is crucial because it will help you plan for compensation and offer a foundation for practices to compute their fees in accordance with industry norms. Your staff should be aware of how this works as well.

Fee schedules, CPT codes, regional adjustments, physician fees, conversion factors, and more can make the American medical system seem befuddling. But it’s the precise nature of each of these phrases, as well as others, that helps us all traverse the current American medical environment.
