The reports output can definitely differentiate between a successfully run, but also if there were any changes made.

For example the puppet enterprise console shows you also the outcome of the report which can be; failed, unchanged, changed.

One way to do it in a more sophisticated way is to write an custom made report handler which will analyse the YAML output and if there are changes you can trigger a different alert to the Opsview. Have a look at the metrics -> values -> changed value in the YAML report.
