As I understand it, since a Heuristic Evaluation report would show data collected from multiple sources and an aggregate of that data, the simplest format would be a bar chart with overlays.
Having said that, I think adding some design approaches common in infographics might go a long way towards improving legibility and adding impact. While these examples aren't specifically tied to Heuristic Evaluation data, the approach would translate fairly cleanly.

I think I would approach a report display by using vertical height to represent positive/negative heuristic value, horizontal value to be the categories evaluated, and colors to indicate either strength of compliancy or to organize sections of the report by sub-categories if there are a significant number of categories.
Hope this helps!
