BEAUDESERT State High School graduate Haley Cobb is helping to roll-out new hospital software that will allow for more accurate assessments of important medical scans.

The former Rathdowney resident, 21, studied an Arts and Business degree at the University of the Sunshine Coast and this month gained a graduate position with Healius, a company that owns a network of medical businesses across Australia, including GP practices and day hospitals.

Her new job will see her travelling around north Brisbane and the Sunshine Coast.

"I've now moved to Maroochydore as a base to work in the healthcare imaging services division of Healius," she said.

"I am really excited to be in this role because I am involved in the roll-out of a new imaging software which will benefit patients and medical practitioners.

"It is a digital platform to allow for more accurate and efficient assessments of X-rays, CT scans and MRIs, while preventing waste from non-biodegradable hard film copies."

Ms Cobb said she would focus on building strong client relationships to help doctors and allied health workers understand how to use the program.

She said she had loved her time at university - where she was heavily involved in student sport including badminton, soccer and running - but was excited to start a new chapter in her life.

Meanwhile, Beaudesert State High School year 12s are preparing to head out into the world as graduates next month.
