The purpose of this case study and discussion is to demonstrate how technology can be harnessed to enhance the performance of research teams involved in community-engaged research. Case examples from an interdisciplinary, community-engaged research project in a midsize city in the southern United States are presented to demonstrate the applicability of certain technology tools. This study examined how researchers used technology in the field to manage the project and facilitate effective communication, enhance data collection, and engage community members. Lessons learned from the field and implications for future research are discussed.
