When I inquired about these last month, our Ovid rep stated that:
"the AHA titles will be available after all in the Total Access Collection Q4 and as a separate collection as well. The contracts are being finalized now. Two journals -- Arrhythmia & Electrophysiology, Heart Failure -- are both available for subscription now. If you decide to move forward with a subscription we would credit a pro-rate in Q4 when the journals are moved into the Total Access Collection."
My understanding was that existing customers would obtain at no additional charge if we waited for the fourth quarter update of the LWW Total Access collection.
I, too, will check once again with our Ovid rep to see if anything has changed.

Check with your Ovid rep. (again) and we may have to, as well...
Our's told us that the spin-off titles would be incorporated, but not
immediately, since new LWW titles are only added quarterly or so...
Nowhere on the AHA site is there institutional licensing information
for the spin-off titles...Also, not all 6 are available yet, right?
